I'm looking for a good FREE way to stay in touch and still let others know what's going on. I don't want to run a website (been there, done that) so I'm thinking maybe a blog. Your thoughts/ideas??

have you checked out this site, it looks like it could be a good way to stay in touch and let your family and friends in on what you are doing.

I've used yahoogroups in the past with good luck. Just set it up so messages you (as owner) send are sent out to others and what they reply back goes to you. Friends can subscribe/unsubscribe easily without bothering you with keeping a mailing list up to date. I've been using Airmail (Pactor) over HAM radio for years. Now when I'm near WIFI I use that but still use the HAM when in a remote anchorage. Clark sv/Temptress

Looks like we have exactly what you are looking for.

We offer free sailing blogs with photoalbum, map tracking, mobile updates,
and much more. this means you can keep in touch with friends an family even while offshore.

It's a new sailing community site - just went live 2 weeks ago after a 3 month beta phase.

if you would like to have a closer look: there you can look at some tripjournals, take the tour and sign up ;-).

Hope you like it!
Best Regards, Daniel.
