Too Cold for Mermaids
by Forsyth, David J.
Forsyth writes about what happens when the dream of the cruising life meets reality, describing his experiences living the sailing dream as well as the disappointment, defeat, and surprising realities that came with it. Forsyth begins with how he joined a sailing community, acquired the skills, crewed on others’ boats, and found the funds to buy and equip his own "Alice Rose". Their voyages took them through the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence River, and the North Atlantic from Labrador to Florida.
