Inhaltsangabe: Sailing Through Paradise describes a single-handed four-month-long sailing trip from the Florida Keys to the Virgin Islands and back. Illustrated with color photographs taken by the author, the book is a visual treat for the armchair traveler as well as a resource for anyone planning a similar trip. It touches on topics of interest such as planning a route, anchoring techniques, customs and immigration, understanding weather forecasts, and repairs at sea.
Vom Autor: At age 55, having just ended the last of a series of desk-bound jobs, I wanted an adventure. My solo sail through the West Indies filled that need abundantly. I enjoyed the challenges of planning a route and anticipating weather changes so I could travel from anchorage to anchorage in relative comfort and safety. Despite my planning, I experienced some anxious moments. Bad winds and big seas forced me to retreat back to Florida on my first attempt to cross the Gulf Stream. I was chased by storms through the Mona Passage between Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. I sliced my arm in the Acklins and had to find somebody to stitch me up. Being alone was both satisfying and disconcerting. I was the captain of my own fate out there, the ruler of my own little world, making my own decisions about when and where and how to travel. On the other hand, I was keenly aware that I had only myself to rely on. Nobody was around to help if I got into serious trouble.
When friends and family ask about my best memories of the trip, I tell them I liked visiting a small, uninhabited island for the first time. The little islands of the Bahamas and the Caribbean are lovely, and visiting them under sail was a delight.
