Changing-Course
by Cantrell, Debra Ann
Cantrell was dismayed when her husband suggested they go cruising. What had other women felt and done? She embarked on a five-year study of women who had chosen the lifestyle; this is her deeply insightful guidebook for managing the odyssey of change the cruising life brings. She shows that things don't always go as planned--not every woman who went to sea stayed there, and not every marriage survived. But without exception, each woman was in some way changed and strengthened by the experience.

Geared specifically to the needs of cruising sailors, the eighth edition provides over 6,000 waypoints to assist navigators in planning individual passages. It is the perfect one-stop reference for planning a voyage anywhere in the world.
