If you dream of escaping society's web to live a more fulfilled existence. If you fantasize about sailing warm seas to distant landfalls. If you wish your footprints were the only ones on the beach. If you yearn to dive the coral reefs alive with colorful fish. Then "All About Cruising" will help you plan your escape. Whether for six months or six years, a well planned small boat cruise can achieve all these goals and more. The author, a veteran cruiser, lays out the steps the reader must take to make the transition to cruising sailor and break free from shore. The book runs the gamut from Anchoring to Weather- and everything in between. Complete, thorough, direct and knowledgeable.
