On the subject of those that have "been there done that" are several books by Myles and Beryl Smeeton, British ex-pat Canadians who bought a boat in England, sailed it to BC as "newbies" and then went on various adventures including a Pacific circumnav and 'round the horn attempts with John Guzwell as crew. Some of these trips included very high drama. Easy reading, admirable resilient people, remarkable accomplishments. The titles escape me at the moment, there are two or three books.
