autopilot

I don't have autopilot.
I believe that people are becoming slaves of gadgets

So, the only gadget I have onboard is GPS. I’d likely drop that one too; however I haven’t learned celestial navigation yet.
The sailing rig I have is Cat Ketch – so it will sail itself most of the time. At least going upwind. Going downwind require more tweaking, I guess I can rig sheet to steering wheel. It hasn’t been tested yet but I have clear idea what is needed.

P.S. Well, I also have laptop and internet, so, I guess, I'm slave too
