August 29, 2014 By Mike Dickens 3 Comments I get asked often about what makes  good blue water sailboats.
Ocean sailing on blue water sailboats is more than recreation; it is a learning platform, observation post, a transportation system for awareness, and a delivery system for understanding. Ocean cruising aboard blue water sailboats can be one of the most miserable and enjoyable sports in the world, both at the same time.
Ocean cruising on blue water sailboats  is an educational opportunity that has rich potential for the development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are difficult to teach in the confines of the classroom. Blue water sailboats were used by the Greeks and Egyptians several thousand years before the birth of Christ.
In Principles of Yacht Design, Larsson and Eliasson note that the seaworthiness of blue water sailboats depends on its dynamic behavior in a seaway; and dynamic effects, naturally, are much more difficult to measure or predict than static effects. Images of  blue water sailboats conjure up names such as Heritage, Contessa, Fisher, Ocean, Tayana and Roberts.

Ocean cruising people have learned how to manage their lives, including relationships and money, because they must.
Ocean sailing in a blue water sailboat is a fantastic tool for honing individual and team skills.


Perhaps the following broader definition is closer to what modern designers aim for; seaworthy blue water sailboats that are able to recover quickly from a 180-degree capsize without serious damage and without sinking.
Big enough to be sea-kindly and safe in bad weather, yet small enough for one to single-hand if you had to. Sufficient power to make your way motoring or motor-sailing when necessary, or to power up and get out of a tight spot.
This will be your home, so you need enough room for books and other comforts, plus all the spares, tools, etc. Good solid footing while walking around the deck, and good drainage in downpours or shipping green water. Comfortable and safe for whosoever on watch, and safe in a seaway, with ability to drain fast if much water is shipped. Headroom for a 6′ person, and solid handholds for moving around below when the seas are up. Dodger with easy visibility forward to keep the wind out of the cockpit, and along with splash cloths keep crew in the cockpit dry when water is shipped, and Bimini to shade us from the tropical sun. Minimal electrical requirements but yet enough space to keep stuff cool, a freezer would also be good. Enough electrical storage to light and cool the boat, plus run our basic electrical equipment without excessive recharging requirements. To know how old the rigging is, what the service record is for the engine, hull, plumbing, and electrical system, etc. Essential for navigation at night when near land, or in shipping areas, or of course in fog.

The place else may just I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal approach?
We want to thank you ever so much for all that you have done for us, this week has been a whirl wind, an education and learning process and fun. Designers of blue water sailboats have taken how boats are sailed today into consideration, considering the extra weight and speed the boats will need. Strong enough to look after herself while hove, free of violent, jerky rolling and pounding, well-balanced, docile on the helm, and easily handled at all times agile downwind and able to beat to windward, or at least hold her ground, in all but the heaviest of conditions. Also a tremendous assist when approaching an unfamiliar harbor with a hard-to-find entrance, or entering or leaving an anchorage at night.
