Congratulations on writing such a comprehensive and honest book Rick & Jasna. Your book is essential reading for all those about to embark on their journey, or those folk out there now who are struggling to make ends meet, right to the far end of the spectrum of those on the water - the old salts of the sea, who I think would find your book spot on the mark. We loved your honesty, your humor and simple but effect advice. Loved all the references to further your readers library. Guiding them to books that we have on our shelves and like you, find them very helpful references. Our combined sailing years exceed 50 and yet we still learnt things from your book - thank you. We live on-board and hope one day our paths cross so we can shout you a 'cold one'! Cheers from Deb, SV Matilda.
Thanks so much for putting the book together. It is a proper read to assisting anyone wishing to get real and get gone. The book gives a real honest perspective as to what it will take to making a life on the whilst cutting the crap.
Whilst there are other fantastic sailing stories like the one produced by Moitissier and Lin and Larry Pardey, this is the book that will most likely make it happen for you!!!
Fair winds and a big thumbs up to King Neptune and all the fish!!
