Seeking Other Countries


Seeking countries other than our own. One of the foundational elements of well rooted voyaging and cruising...well rooted in the sense of travel on a sailing boat for the express purpose of discovery. One of my all time favorites - Waters did not mention him in her SAIL article - is Wingsail..the adventures of Fred Roswold and the missus who reside for the moment in Borneo, in KK (Kota Kinabalu), the booming capital of the Malaysian state of Sabah. They last wrote to us from Kudat, also in Sabah.

The above is a traffic snapshot over several days. Makes sense that the U.S. at nearly 80% is the longest bar but the list stretches...thanks to the Fred Roswold's of the world (and their ilk) who log on to remind me/us/we that sailors are seekers of other countries...in this world and beyond.

Thanks for the plug. I've been away from the internet for a few months, out in the boondocks, so to speak, and it is good to be back and be able to catch up on Zepher.

Where do you suppose the BVI is on that list?
