Going cruising, escaping that rat race, can be life-changing and that is made very apparent in this lively memoir. Full of memorable characters, honest observation, real emotion and the challenges big and small of cruising to far off isles. iBooks.com

My husband John bought your (autographed) book at the Seattle Boat Show and it took me one chapter to know I was going to spend nights after John went to bed so I could read your adventures with Jack! I am delighted with the way the book reads - it made me read from one chapter to the next, with no down-time! I didn't need to go sailing to feel the fear of the 'trough'. I didn't need to be there to feel the heavenly sand, vegetation, and see the smiling faces of the locals when Rick described them. I can't wait for your next book. Oh! John can't wait either, and, in fact, he read the last few chapters while we were waiting for our car to be serviced (a two plus hour wait!) and had tears in his eyes a page before the end and again when he finished the last few words!!! This isn't like him. So you wrote a good one, and we want more!
