Wow, around the world on a sailboat: THAT is exciting!
One place you can hear Latin pronunciation, and see some video to go with it, is through the Latinum project - just go to YouTube and look at the Latinum channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/evan1965
I publish a blog that has Latin sayings and mottoes - those can be fun for beginners, because in just a few words Latin sometimes expresses some great ideas! here is that blog: http://bestlatin.blogspot.com/
- maybe you can even choose a Latin motto for yourself.
I also have put online a collection of easy Latin proverbs that are organized by grammatical topics - there are lots of proverbs with just nouns in them, no verbs, so they are easy to read right from the start - here is where you can find all those proverbs online: http://latinviaproverbs.pbworks.com/group001
I hope you will enjoy your Latin adventure!
