on second thought, get your boyfriend to read them so he knows the types of concerns and questions swirling around in your head.

My wife just finished the new book "The Motion of the Ocean" by Janna Cawrse Esarey and stated it reflected her experience sailing offshore and living aboard better than any other book she has read.
She asked me to read it to "get a clue" on how it felt to be offshore with me.
I'm 1/3rd through the book and agree that it should be on a list of books to read along with Beth and Lynn Pardey.

One question for you...are you and your boyfriend committed to each other enough to get married? If not I wouldn't suggest planning to cruise for any length of time with him.

I'm reading the book "Maiden Voyage" right now. I recently posted a review on our blog about it. It's a great book to read if you're going to be cruising and while Tania does it alone, it's great to see this young woman figuring things out on her own!

dogsailors is an unknown quantity at this point
sorry but that book was so poorly written, no offense to Tania but it sucked. Youll be fine as long as your man isnt a wus complaining all the time. Just keep your cool and life will be splendid. My advice is to hide a little gin and tonic water under the setee

I just went to her blog. Her and her boyfriend are chartering - taking paying passengers for each leg of the trip. They are apparently booked into next year and have a tight schedule as far as I can see. While I wish the best, it's a schedule like I've never seen for any but seasoned world travellers. They are taking the fast track around apparently.

Scroll down to the itinerary.

Regardless, this "poorly written" book is incredibly inspiring to some and it's worth considering. It has a 4 1/2 star review on Amazon by 83 people and was a recommended read by Library Journal. Of course, it was written when she was 21 and this is apparent, but that's what gives it charm.

I'd agree that Tania's book is a good tale and inspiring; I don't have any issues about it being poorly written.

In fact, I just reread it last week. I met Tania years ago at Strictly Sail Chicago and was moved to buy the book way back then.

As a writer myself, I resist any temptation to analyze anything I'm reading for knowledge and enjoyment. If there are flaws in her presentation, the story itself more than compensates for them.

I am not a Lady but getting closer to becoming one.

(Wo)man - just do it.

If the social (ma, pa, friends, dog, church) issues bother you more than the sea matters then perhaps try for some way of visiting them often and discuss the matter in advance with the captain.

Sailing-wise the circumnavigation is easy, but beware of emotional pitfalls.

Re: lady cruisers

Hi Ash!

I saw your post here on SailNet and your user name sounded familar and I said it to my husband and he reminded me that we met you at the 79th Street Boat Basin in NYC about 3 weeeks ago! We were the couple with the two black and white dogs and we talked for a bit while we were doing laundry.

How are you? When are you headed on your circumnavigation? We are currently in Deltaville, VA, 1 day away from the AICW, thank god!

Anyway good luck on your trip! We are headed to FL for a bit so maybe we will see you somewhere along the way.

Take Care, Nicole
