having said that people on the water are generally rather kind and curteous

Just a heads up for those of you that have been enjoying "Keep turning Left" note that Dylan has put up his own site, it should be easier to locate and track his adventures here... he's also offering HD video if you have the bandwidth.

Check it out!

I'm still catching up on the older stuff but hey, its great to have the Master of the Four Knot Shite Box onboard.

I love DW's stuff. The idea of coasting has great appeal to me. Sadly Oz is not really the place to do it but GB seems ideal.

Now I really do encourage each and every one of you to watch all his vids. Take your time, no big hurry, you get to see a whole lot more of the world when you travel at the speed of a walking horse. That said, check out the Gaffers vid. Starboard !

Cheers to DW, great to have here.

Enough spruiking from me for now.

I'm a big fan of his vids, they are an inspiration for me, I always post up my short little clips of daysails, but when I start longer cruises I want to make longer vids. They will never come close to the quality of his though.

The website is great, and I need to experiment some more with downloading the high quality versions.

The family and I are gradually working through the series, but we are watching them on our 42 inch plasma tv. We have an Apple TV unit that lets us watch youtube videos in surprising quality.

What I would like to have is a second monitor in my office set up as a digital picture frame. I would definitely loop some of Winter's videos there for guests.
