lifestyle and go cruising. It would make a great gift for
women reluctantly contemplating cruising at the urging of
Seas - Beth Leonard
Beth Leonard describes both her physical and emotional journey
aboard 'Hawk'. While Beth tends to get a little 'wordy',
she does a good job of describing cruising experiences that
sometimes escape our ability to explain.
Cruising : The Thoreau Approach - Don Casey & Lew Hackler
Don Casey and Lew Hackler bring insight to the cruising
lifestyle. This book is a great read for new sailors or
those who have already circumnavigated.
Away - Herb Payson
In Sea Foam, a 36-foot ketch, Herb and Nancy Payson and their large brood of teenage children cruised the Pacific for six and a half
years. They experienced a certain amount of stark terror, but their delights far outbalanced the drawbacks. The result is Blown Away, a
kind of Swiss Family Robinson with overtones of the Marx Brothers.

Tami Oldham and her fiancÚ, Richard Sharp, are caught in a violent hurricane in the crystal waters of the Pacific Ocean. Richard is
swept overboard and Tami is left grief-stricken and alone on a ravaged yacht.
Red Sky in Mourning is her amazing story of 41 days of survival recounted
among poignant flashbacks of the adventure and romance she and
Richard experienced while cruising French Polynesia.

to the Wind - Pete Goss
During the 1996 Vendee Globe single-handed, round the world race, Pete Goss turned his 50-foot yacht Aqua Quorum back into a

wondered what it would be like to compete in a solo race, this book is
as close as you can get without going.

Bahamas for over twenty years. The Neale's share their experience

American Sailboat - Gregory O. Jones
Greg brings sailing history to life. He captures the
character of the boats he describes as well as the characters
who sail them. You won't find my autographed copy in any
cruiser's book trade. This is a keeper!
