American Sailing E-News
Welcome to Sailing With Style, the American Sailing Association's new monthly e-newsletter!
As the name suggests, this publication emphasizes the
lifestyle aspects of sailing.
"Bareboat Chartering Essentials" will provide you key tips both to save
money and to ensure that your next chartering adventure is as
possible. In "The Cockpit Lounge"
you'll learn how to use social media to meet and stay in touch with
sailors... stay connected and stay on the water! "The Nautical Chef"
will show you how to make a meal that
doesn't just "work" on the boat, but has your crew talking about the
your trip for months or years to come. And what would a lifestyle magazine
be without some "do's"
and "don'ts" of nautical attire? More on that later!
Please enjoy, and email us with your suggestions so that
we can continue to improve our newsletter. Hope to see you at one of
flotillas, member events, or local sailing club functions soon!
Bareboat Chartering Essentials

The Cockpit Lounge
Are You Connected?
by Meghan Cleary, ASA
now many of you have seen ASA's new social media presence on Facebook, Twitter,
and our new blog. I'm thrilled to see how quickly the community has sprung up
there -- though I can't say I'm too surprised.
The Nautical Chef
by Mark Ramsdell, ASA Member
anyone? Perhaps if we serve them with a ration of rum, you won't mind
weevils. The nautical chef's challenges today are far different than
in the days of square-riggers, thankfully, but the "galley slave" still
considerable obstacles in planning, provisioning, prepping, cooking,
and cleaning up after hungry sailors. For the benefit of sailing chefs
everywhere -- from passage-makers to
dockside entertainers -- ASA presents the nautical chef newsletter
column to help
members learn from one another's experiences, cooking tips, and recipes.
