"And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by"
I have to agree with Al Placette when he said this is "one of the most beautiful and oft-quoted lines ever penned about sailing and the sea..."
If you have this extreme nostalgic feeling for this ancient art of navigation using the stars and the planets rather than a GPS, then you are not alone. At least I would be another one you can count on to share that feeling. Every time that I got to sail on a 14' dinghy or a 40' yacht, I felt that same feeling as if there was the wind of thousands years of sea going history blowing on my back. I imagined of all the courage, tragedy and triumph that people must had felt as they got lost on the high sea or able to make it to the destination.
This app is created out of a deep admiration for these ancient mariners. It is with the hope that it could help to do a little part in preserving this beautiful art of navigation, and may be, bringing us all a little bit closer to those courageous sea goers centuries before us.
