I'm not sure I understand some of the terminology being thrown around... sailing vs. cruising... some things I can pick out by context, but... I didn't see a glossary on that Cruising Wiki (which might be my occasional blindness / not looking hard enough cropping up.) but a glossary might be something to add for people who are new to the community... and I'm probably not the right person to start it!
