Sailor Advice, Adventures, Stories, and More…

NauticEd’s Learn from Other Sailors blog was inspired by you, our students. Learning from others is one of sailing’s greatest traditions: sea stories, advice, tips, travel and simply sharing the adventures of friends on-the-water fully enriches and completes one’s sailing experience. NauticEd fully embraces the sailing life and respects the often hard-earned experience of sailors.

We welcome sailors who’d like to share with NauticEd. Please contact us at if you’d like to share your own story, advice and experience.
