One of my favorite online things at the moment is Dylan Winters keepturningleft. If you haven't checked it out, you are really missing something. Dylan is a BBC-like broadcaster-type who is sailing round Britain, slowwwwwwwwly and video-blogging his journey. He started in Cowes (last year I think) and is sailing in short hops round the sceptered Isle. His first episode is below.
His thoughtful, honest, gentle narrative of the simple pleasures of gunk-holing in a stumpy little sailboat is incredibly compelling. I am learning a ton about my homeland. Boy, did I miss some nice sailing spots.
For the America readers of this blog you will learn some great new Anglo-Saxon words like twazzock.
Watch the playlist in sequence. A lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday.
On the other side of the pond is my sailing-blogger friend, Brian's A Movable bridge. This link is to his original entry which chronicled Brian and his partner Karen's mission to explore every one of the 25 movable bridges in New York city in their sturdy motor boat, Puffin. It's well worth a visit.
Brian now has a newer blog dedicated to various things nautical.
I am deeply jealous of Brian as he sailed in the Clipper race across the Pacific. You should blog about that Brian, hint!
