There is an ocean that is lesser known. A sea that is not often discussed. Yet, since the utter devastation wrought by super-hurricanes such as Irma and Maria, it is a sea that many now need to consider crossing.
What can you do with your GPX data? What is GPX data? Why should you care? If you’re on a sailboat with a chart plotter or multi-function device (MFD) and GPS, you probably generate GPX data whenever you move the boat. GPX data is nothing more than a collection of GPS waypoints that, when strung together, form a track.
Did we make it?
We had to face the reality that we may run out of fuel before reaching water that was shallow enough to drop our anchor in.
If that were to happen, we would effectively be helpless. Without any wind to drive the boat forward, the current would sweep is east toward Colombia.
Not exactly ideal!
Do you remember being a kid at the airport and being unable to resist walking the wrong way on a travellator. How cool is it to keep walking, but not moving?
So much fun!
Not when you are sailing.
