HOW TO ADD NEW STORIES AND PHOTOS
When you would like to add a story, be very careful that you place it under the right area and country. This is very important! So first select the area and a country and marina. To add cruising stories you only choose the area. Create a simple and clear title to your story, so readers can see in a second what's your story about. Please first read some stories, before you add a new one yourself.
The main issue with crusing stories is to describe an area and marinas and anchorages in this area. And remarkeble things you have discovered. Of course it is nice to read about your experiences, but all details
of conversations with your crew and how drunk they all have been isn't very interesting for most readers.
Please try to describe your own experiences and for sure you can make it a thrilling and enjoyable piece. Before adding your own stroy, please read some others as an example.
If you would like to write about a marina which does not exist in the database, you can add this name yourself. Be sure that you choose the right area and country first. Then you can add the name of the marina under 'add new marina'. Finally save your new addtion.
When you have added and saved a story, you can upload photos to it. Click om photos and you can search for pictures on your computer. Select the right picture and then you can upload it.
Own experiences of sailors who 'have been there' are very interesting and can be very helpful to other sailors planning their next trip. So please write your stories and add them to this website.
