I created thestarboardtack.com as a way to continue my relationship with sailing and the sailing community.  My wish is that it does the same for my readers.

There are some things you should know:

I am the only person responsible for choosing what I blog about – products, locations, etc. and the only person (at the moment) who is doing the writing.

I do not receive free products. 

I do not receive any compensation for any of the items I blog about.

If there is a product I wish to share, I will purchase that product if I don’t have primary knowledge of that product or know enough about it first-hand to discuss.

My blog is for informational purposes.  Should you use any of the information or materials, you do so at your own risk.  If you use a link to purchase an item from another site/vendor whatever happens from that point on is between you and the vendor.  The Starboard Tack assumes no liability and it is your responsibility to receive satisfaction from the vendor.

Any links provided to other websites are provided for the reader’s convenience for further information. I have no responsibility for content other than my own.

All the writing is my original work. It may not be copied or used in any way. 

Much of the photography is my own. Please don’t use any of the images without permission.

Basically – this is a site for me to have fun – I want to keep it that way. 

Thank you for reading and sharing my interest in sailing – everything BUT the boat!
