Learn to sail by long term cruising

I am looking for crew for an around the world adventure voyage. I will not leave for over a year and will teach you how to navagate, sail and manage my 50ft ketch before leaving. There will be short cruises to Key West etc... The real fun and learning will start after we leave on a long term cruise. If this sounds like you see me at www.geocities.com/svsouthernmagic and email me at svsouthernmagic@hotmail.com

I did the same thing a while ago. I advertised in Latitude 38 Magazine and got a good crew. Visit my site at http://www.morgansailing.tripod.com to see the book I wrote about the experience (Flying Star: A Sailboat''s Story). The information might be helpful to you. Good luck!

Claude,
I tried to access your website and got a Tripod message saying it couldn''t be found.
I tried your book title on a yahoo search and only got Amazon''s German site. I would like to look at your website.

Gemstoneminer: The book is available through Amazon.com. I opened the Amazon.com home page, copied the title of the book in the "search" window and it found it for me.

I had the same experience as yours in searching for the web site.

Good luck to you,

Bill
