Welcome to the first edition of Cruising Odyssey, our new, dynamic, free weekly e-newsletter and constantly updated website aimed at celebrating the idea of Living the Dream Under Power. A totally digital enterprise, Cruising Odyssey offers an entirely new way to connect with those of us who cruise under power; we focus on pursuing the dream, whether that leads to the Great Loop, the Inside Passage, the Med, or hanging out on the hook in a favorite nearby cove. And it’s designed for the way we get information today: mobile, digital, immediate, worldwide and through social media. Sign up for the newsletter here.
.
As you can see, Cruising Odyssey provides one-stop shopping for the active – and growing – power cruising audience. The website and newsletter will be filled with news, original content, boat and gear reviews, lots of aggregation (collecting the best and most relevant stories, videos and blogs from around the world), and a robust search function so you can find archived stories to help you make cruising decisions for years to come. We also will use social media for immediate, direct reader involvement.
