The Currents editorial team is pleased to announce “Currently Cruising Updates“, a new news feature that will highlight and provide brief updates from BCA’s currently cruising fleet. At any time, approximately 15% of our membership can be found on the water, cruising the oceans and islands of the world. Often, communications is challenging due to limited or no WiFi or connectivity, so the idea behind the Currently Cruising Updates is not lengthy articles about the cruising experience or cultures and peoples encountered along the way (although those contributions are eagerly awaited and enjoyed – please don’t stop sending them!); instead, this is more of a quick check-in, perhaps with an accompanying photo, to let the membership at home know how things are going and where you are.
Some members will recall that BCA used to publish a world map in Currents that identified a cruiser’s location; while our existing website doesn’t allow for that (although the idea of a similar map remains on the wish list), the editorial team hopes that this will provide an alternate way for cruisers to stay in touch and for the rest of us to vicariously follow their journey.
If you are one of our Currently Cruising members who would like to send us a quick update (where you are, your next destination, plans for this year’s cruising season, etc), we would love to hear from you. Your email and photo(s) (high res, landscape orientation, please) can be sent to Rosario, Currents Managing Editor.
We look forward to hearing from you!
