Cruiser's Dictionary - by JeanneP

This extremely useful cruising and sailing dictionary has been compiled over a period of 20 years from personal cruising experience on their sailing yacht sv Watermelon, on their mv Watermelon and from various other qualified sources. The author, Jeanne Pockel, and her husband Peter left Boston to cruise for a couple of years aboard their Jeanneau Sun Fizz. Twenty years later they are still cruising for a couple of years and Jeanne has graciously offered her gold mine of information to assist fellow cruisers as well as those planning to follow in their wake.

This Cruising Dictionary will always be a "work in progress" and updated regularly. Please see the notes at the bottom of this page.
