America's preeminent woman sailor brings to life the astounding story of her against-all-odds finish in the most demanding sailing competition ever, the Whitbread Round-the-World.

Dramatic story of youngest woman sailor to circle the globe
At the age of 18, Tania Aebi's troubled background had left her estranged from her family, with few plans for the future outside of a vague ambition to be a writer. Then, her father offered to give her a sailboat -- if she would agree to leave her friends behind and sail around the world alone. This book tells the story of her 2 1/2 year voyage, a trip as dramatic and touching
cover The Cruising Woman's Advisor : How to Prepare for the Voyaging Life ~ Diana B. Jessie
Our Price: $13.56 ~ You Save: $3.39 (20%)

Diana Jessie answered many of my questions that are not addressed in other cruising books. The topics aren't just for women either. She discusses every day events that are encountered in the cruising lifestyle such as: how to dispose of trash, how you interact daily with your crew and with other boats, how to make the adjustment, and much more. My only regret is that she didn't go into more detail. She utilized the experiences of 21 participants, experienced women cruisers/sailors, for the research and background of the book. Great job and good reading!
