Your contribution is welcome.When sending me your waypoint list please be sure that it will be of general interest. It should cover a certain area with a constant waypoints density, and the descriptions should be understandable by other people. In particular the descriptions should be understandable without looking at the waypoint symbols, because not all users will use the symbols. Please don't send huge collections obtained from a low precision database. Only the file format "GARtrip waypoints *.wp" is accepted. You may compress it to a zip file if you want. Please send it by email with a short description containing the category (sailing, hiking, etc.), and the country and region covered. Please use only this email address for submission: . By submitting a file to this address you agree that your name will be published here. You may instruct me at any time to remove your contribution.

Email addresses of contributors are not published, but I can forward your mail if required.

No maps please. Please understand that I won't accept map files for this collection. I have two reasons for this restriction: First the international copyrights don't allow to distribute any printed material without permission of the editor, and second my web server is too small to handle collections of maps.
