Sailing to the Edge of Time
by Kretschmer, John
Kretschmer’s sailing adventures have taken him several times around the world and across the Atlantic and the Pacific in all weathers. He narrowly escaped a coup in Yemen, had an unlikely deliverance from a coral reef off Belize, and was blessed with several serene, introspective passages. His crew has included CEOs, actors, writers, teachers, kids. His memoir of his time afloat is interwoven with practical tips and advice on seamanship–as well as hard-won insights about making the most of our lives.
