“So weigh the anchor, set those sails
Don't slack along the way
With this good wind, unless luck fails
We'll be home for Christmas day.”


You may be on passage, in harbour, at anchor or tucked up on land whilst your boat weathers winter alone, but wherever you may be we would like to wish all our followers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We would especially like to thank all the amazing contributors to noonsite. Without your unfailing support the site would just not be the incredible resource that it is.

We would also like to say a big Thank You to everyone who made a small donation to noonsite during 2017, and in particular those who have signed up for regular monthly donations as they use the site for their cruising. It may seem only a small amount, but your donations continue to help us develop the site and keep it running as a free service for the cruising community.

Finally, a sprinkle of Christmas wishes to all our advertisers, from the smallest sail makers to our global sponsors, yacht transport specialists Peters & May. It is you that are the mainstay of our funding, keeping the site alive and growing, and for that we are very grateful.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year, from the noonsite team,
Sue, Val, Jeremy, Noah & Kate.
