brother solo trans atlantic videos

He is currently in the Madeira Islands. He is heading next on to the Canaries, then to the Caribbean and back home to FL. He made the videos and site for his friends and family. But, some of the footage is so good that i figured i would share it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Fun video, but you need to tell your brother about shirts

I hope the rest of his trip goes well!
