World Cruising Wiki...


I have written about the excellent Active Captain project before, but I have recently discovered the World Cruising Wiki which seems to be a tremendous use of wiki technology to collate the wisdom of cruisers from around the globe. Active Captain is focused on collating local navigation and pilotage information from its registered skippers but also on bringing this knowledge to your smart phone – an endeavour that is still bleeding edge – but will eventually be perfectly acceptable and reliable…. As smart phones get better, and GSM or CDMA more reliable and extensive then of course access to all sorts of knowledge bases will improve.

The founders of the World Cruising Wiki aims are ….” The World Cruising and Sailing Wiki (an online world cruising guide) has been established so that all cruisers around the world can have free access to as much information on cruising around the world as possible. Information on Countries, Immigration and Customs procedures, world ports, navigation and approaches, marinas, anchorages, etc. A FREE, ONLINE WORLD CRUISING GUIDE!

This World Cruising and Sailing Wiki is a resource to which all cruisers are encouraged to freely contribute and thereby help to build a great reference resource for the benefit of all cruisers that are sailing around the world….”

I will certainly be exploring this wiki and its associated forum over the next few weeks…and hopefully adding to the wiki with respect to the English Channel area….I recommend that you have a look and contribute to the section that refers to your sailing area… apologies if you already knew and use this wiki…I can be a bit slow at times!
