Ports & Anchorages Visited by Onward

While sailing across Cape Cod Bay, I was thinking of how to do a better job of consolidating the information I have gathered about the many ports and anchorages Onward has used over the last 6 + years of wandering from Maine to the Bahamas. I have formed the habit of putting contact information in my iPhone contacts list and this serves me well. However I decided to create a new web page to consolidate all the information in one place to make it easier for me to share with friends.

This is a work-in-progress (and will be for some time).
