Upgrades for Offshore Sailing

Offshore Sailing Projects and Preparations on SV Cadence

A few months ago we set aside 2 months to dig into a few sailboat projects that would prepare Cadence (our sailboat) for offshore sailing and extended travel.

Now, after 1000nm, what do we think?

Were the upgrades good?

Which projects did we appreciate the most?

Our 5 Best Preparations

How do I prepare for an offshore passage?

It’s a big question – It’s not easy crossing a large ocean or to take your first multiday offshore passage – but we recently had our first, and these are our 5 best preparations for sailing offshore.

We had many projects before setting sail, but these were our top 5 – the offshore preparations that helped us the most.

Each sailboat and crew will be completely different, so I’d love to hear what your top 5 offshore sailing preparations would be!
