2016 Meet Up was a resounding success. We got together in the tropical paradise helping each other come closer to realizing our dreams, had more fun than would be appropriate to write about here, and made connections that continue to inspire and enrich our lives.

If there is interest, we can do a follow up article on the website about the festival and what may be to come...

@nila
I stay in Rio Dulce to continue the spirit of the festival and keep the boatpunk community alive there with The Gnarwind Project. I teach those who are genuinely interested in learning and willing to put in the time and effort. Volunteers, backpackers, and fellow sailors have been coming through and participating here with the Gnarwind Project since the festival ended in March.

I am currently reaching out to the community and asking for help with Gnarwind to get her out of this expensive Marina I am stuck in and put her back in the water. PM me for details or any questions about the festival or the offshoot project Gnarwind.

sounds good, i'd really like to hear more details, like specifics of what went on and why things were so great. what did people take away from the event? how many showed up? a more full report would definitely entice more people to come out next year.

Very cool. Do they meet up at a specific location or do they all sail to the destination from different areas? Anyone from Texas? Just curious. Right on

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
