I think status updates with info and photos etc mid offshore race or delivery is cool.

I keep a page for my boat so that my other friends who have no interest in the boat(yes, there are people like that!) don't have to read what I post. Also for the crew to have a forum to post on, but they don't much.

A bank.

And Morgan is J.P. Morgan, who famously said about yacht ownership "If you have to ask, you can't afford it."

LOVE the shot of the owner when they reached 2001 hits! Gold. Thanks for sharing, will keep an eye on that one..

Do you think people like to see regular updates? Or only updates when there is sailing and it's live (or close to being live?)

I just like boats having Facebook pages because lots of cool info pops up that you don't really find elsewhere during a race. Its just so easy to make a quick update or post a photo when your course takes you back into cell range for a brief moment. I think the only two I follow are Evolution and Peerless. I can wait for info on the folks I don't know to show up here, but it's amusing to find out what friends are up to.

It's cool to see new yachting pages - thanks for sharing.

We are running a small advert to see what it yields - so far our 'likers' have increased by nearly 60 since the advert published.

Just need to go yachting now to have more content to post!

Cheers
