A New Look for noonsite.com
After 12 years with the current look, noonsite.com has had a refresh. Most of the changes are "under the hood", so how the new site navigates should be familiar to all, and to begin with there will be little change from what you have been using in the past, just a fresher look.
Whilst we have tried not to change the front end of the site too much, we have done a lot of work on the database that sits behind the website, so that we can support new features in the future.
The new pages are all scalable so will format more easily on tablets and smart devices. Behind the website our content manager system has been improved allowing the editorial team to control pages more easily, as well as add the useful PDF files and photos we receive with your cruising reports. The site is now on new servers so should be faster and less prone to service interruptions.
News and Cruising Reports
Our news pages highlight important information affecting destinations worldwide. Within the country and port pages, click on Related Reports to read cruising notes and updates from our community of users.
Noonsite.com is a community database, maintained by sailors for sailors, with reports sent in from cruisers worldwide. Anyone can be a noonsite contributor; just send your reports and updates by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want news and information that are useful for other cruisers – reports on rarely visited anchorages, buoyage updates, companies providing good service, customs and immigration information – anything of value for fellow cruisers.
