Is Your Sailing Club on MapMuse?

As you plan your summer cruising, check out this Internet resource I found in a recent Scuttlebutt newsletter...it's a sort of marina/sailing club map version of Wikipedia...

MapMuse.com, an Internet mapping website, has recently added marinas and sailing clubs to its interactive mapping services. There presently are over 8,000 marinas, and 70 sailing clubs included on the MapMuse maps. A typical entry provides the name of a marina or club, descriptive text, a photo, contact information, and a link to a website. Visitors an easily add places, edit existing information, or remove places through links located on the site. When a visitor suggests a change to a map, MapMuse reviews the suggestion for appropriateness, and then posts it within a few hours.

Thanks for that, man. I always forget to comment, but just wanted to stop by and say keep up the good work. Just because people aren't commenting all the time doesn't mean we're not reading.

Let's make summer 2006 the best summer sailing season yet!

I'm leaving on a five day Chesapeake trip next Wednesday! First stop: Tangier Island!

Cheers,

Lonnie Bruner
