As sailors, we’re constantly calling upon our personal repertoire of knots. We master a few common ones and, sometimes, learn knots that are more advanced or serve a more specific purpose. For instance, suppose you need to secure your dinghy to the foredeck.
Since October of 2012, I’ve been using this space to review smartphone apps for SAIL readers. I’ve looked at the best apps for AIS, anchoring and navigation. I’ve tested new apps for boat logs, knot-tying and chartplotting. And when I wanted to send a postcard of my boat from a far-off sea, I found that, yes, there’s an app for that, too.
It's that time of year again — time to fill the stockings of the sailors in our lives with gifts they can use all throughout the year. Whether they're racers or cruisers, the sailor who has everything or the apres sailor, SAIL's 2014 gift guide has something for everyone.
