It’s a common fantasy. No matter how successful we are, we have all sat through interminable meetings, battled mindless bureaucracy, and struggled through frustrating days. Dreams of sailing into the sunset can be a way of keeping sane, but surely they can never become reality for us. Can they? YES THEY CAN!
This is the book we needed when we were deciding whether to give up our jobs and sail off round the world. Here we present a high level overview and treat the subject as a project that can be planned and executed. We help you decide whether it is a practical option, and give a broad outline of the strategy you need to turn the dream into a rewarding reality. We also explain the rewards and costs, financial and in sheer life experience.
Anyone interested in voyaging aboard an ocean going yacht will gain some surprising insights.
Unusually it is written from the perspective of people with no background in sailing but decided to take a career break, learn to sail, then get on and do it.
