We share here our links pointing towards the robotic autonomous sailing world. 
You will find here our friends, potential hardware and software suppliers/sponsors, Institutions, robotics groups, DIY hero/forums, non-profit organizations, competitions we may register at some point. Basically, this is our contact book. You can sort it by country or by category. We use this list to seek funding and potential partners.
