Gypsy Spirit on YouTube      Sail away aboard Gypsy Spirit. Relive the adventure as Kia, my lab/golden mix and I set off for the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Join us as we sail in tandem with Ed and his sailboat Nini. In the course of fullfilling a life long dream we will battle storms and suffer a catastrophic collision with a container ship at sea. This is a pictorial synopsis of my new book “Gypsy Spirit-What My Boat Taught Me About Love And Life.”

Gypsy Spirit on Facebook     Very useful website that allows you to click on a section anywhere on the globe and get detailed information about SURFACE WIND, SURFACE PRESSURE and WAVE HEIGHT AND DIRECTION.     Useful weather forecasting site.     Located in Saint Augustine Florida, this is a great place to scavenge for new and used boat parts.     Check this out.  I went sailing with someone who had a solar stik and I think it is just the greatest thing.  You are able to mount both a wind generator and solar panels to this one unit.  The solar panels can then easily be adjusted to face the sun from sunrise to sunset.  A definite must have for the long distance cruiser.
