Another Sailor Documents Trips Using Google Earth

Sailor anchorages in Caribbean GPS track passage in Google EarthIn my opinion, documenting a long distance travel log is one of the most interesting applications of Google Earth. Especially if you combine the mapping capabilities with a web site which tells the story and has photographs. Recently Geoff Shultz, who sails his boat BlueJacket in and around the Caribbean, put together an excellent Google Earth file documenting his anchorages and passages. If you click on his anchorage icons you see a short description for that anchorage, and usually links to a full report and/or photos. He announced the availability of his log in this post. Geoff also organized his anchorages nicely by country.

A couple of months ago I published a similar GE file for a sailboat trip on a catamaran called PatiCat. If you like Geoff's effort, you'll probably enjoy the PatiCat voyages as well. By the way, in honor of this occasion, I have updated the PatiCat KMZ to include a more complete log. [EDIT 10-Nov-2005: the author, Geoffery Shultz just sent me a message saying my similar cruising log inspired him to do his.]
