Medias became more relevant from decade to decade. Its not just reading books about sailing, seamanship, nautic, sea law, electrics, motor management… watching DVDs / video cassettes and visiting the sailing club for some chit-chat talks late night at the club bar… and having VHF on board for long distance and short distance range communication from board to board.

In times of Internet we have WebTV (nautical channels), video streaming platforms, apps (android, iTunes/Mac), email on board services to communicate efficiently… navigation software, electronic charts, electronic log books let us handle more easily the routing planning. The young sailing generation can handling its learning process individually more independent from time than grown up with sailing till the 80th, e.g. using eBooks, Internet forums, online seminars, video clips, live on board cameras following regattas etc. …

Let’s take a look at some medias I think it’s worthfull to study with and for having an easy going life on board.
