OCC opens up The Flying Fish archive

by Daria Blackwell 26 Mar 16:51 UTC

Need a distraction from the Covid-19 news cycle? Are you self-isolating or in quarantine and looking for something to keep you occupied?

The Ocean Cruising Club, the global community for adventure sailing since 1954, has opened up the archive of its flagship journal, The Flying Fish.

Published twice yearly, editions going back to 1990 are available to download from the OCC website as complete PDFs. Or you can search by topic or cruising area and download individual articles by using the drop-down menus that appear above the current edition. You can read these at your leisure.

Don't want to download big files to your laptop or tablet? With a decent internet connection, you can view issues from 2015 to the current edition as full-screen eZines on the Issuu platform. Follow the link on the OCC website or go directly to the OCC page on Issuu here.

Plan your next adventure, get recipes for your galley, or just dream of distant worlds free of pandemics. Ocean sailors know that all storms pass eventually. This pandemic is a different kind of storm and it too shall pass. Reading is one of the best ways to pass the time while letting the storm pass us by.
