Presentations at Seattle Boat Show
Happy New Year! This year I am honored to be doing a photography presentation at the
Seattle Boat Show. The presentation will be a multimedia slide show and will feature
100+ images from Washington to Alaska. Please come down and check it out [Green Stage]!
I will be presenting at three different times:
- Tuesday, January 21st @ 5PM
- Friday, January 24th @ 1PM
- Sunday, January 26th @ 3PM
Exploring Alaskas Coastline
Remember when Uncle Ron would come over & give a boring slide show of his
summer vacation? Exploring Alaska’s Coastline takes the concept of a slide
show to the next level! Requires
Macromedia Flash Player version 5/6 and is 1.3 megs big (15-second download w/broadband,
510 minutes with dialup).
What a time to be into sailing!
I have to admit updates to tgw.net are getting delayed due to the excellent sailing
events taking place. Around Alone
(formerly the BOC Challenge) is a single handed around the world race. The
Louis Vuitton Cup
is the "prelim" to the America's cup which takes place in February 2003.
You can catch superb coverage of Louis Vuitton Cup action on
OLN (Outdoor Life Network)
around 6 - 9 PM Pacific time. My personal favorites: Bruce Schwab &
Ocean Planet for Around Alone (tough leg one) and One World Challenge
(hailing from the Seattle Yacht Club no less) for the Louis Vuitton Cup.
Three new sailing wallpapers
I was getting tired of the background on my PC, so I decided to create a few more
sailing wallpapers. Olsen 30 Nationals, Sunset at Fisherman's Bay, and
Stars & Stripes. Enjoy!

Visual Navigation Suite After 4000 Miles
In this article you find some of my specific thoughts on Nobeltec's Visual
Navigation Suite (VNS) after logging 4000 miles using the program. This
article is complimentary to the article published in 48º North.

& Electronic Charting in 48º North.
48º North is a fine magazine devoted to northwest sailing. For out-of-area
readers I will post the same article on tgw.net in 2-months.
