Hello from new member Frans Bertels

Looking for navigation software (open source) on Google I found the Cruisers Forum. Looks very good!
Something about myself: just finished building my sailing catamaran and had the maiden trip last summer. Fantastic!! What an experience. In the years to come we will sail along the the Western European Coasts.
28 ft, Gypsy, design Richard Woods (Woods Designs Sailing Catamarans).
Now I'm looking for navigation tools that should be light, easy, economic (Amps and money) and I'm now discovering the world of Linux and open source software, hoping I won't drown in this new flow...

Aloha Frans,
Welcome aboard! Let us know how your adventures mature.
I've been experimenting with a laptop hooked up to my Garmin 72 GPS (thanks Sean). I use Cap'N Voyager software. So far after upgrading the laptop it is working.
Kind Regards,
