Still from Kate's video clip (click on to enlarge).

There's nothing quite like being offshore on a voyaging boat, of course, but this little video clip recorded by Kate Christensen of Rogue Wave Yacht Sales in Annapolis as she sailed aboard the Valiant 42 Gypsy during the Caribbean 1500 will bring knowing nods from those sailors who have experienced it. The sound of the wind, the complexity of the boat's motions as it moves through the seas, the occasional boarding wave, the light glinting off the drop-scattered dodger and all the gear strapped down on deck and all over the place! Check it out and see if you don't agree. 

Kate was an enthusiastic participant on an Ocean Navigator celestial navigation cruise aboard the schooner Virginia a few years ago.
