It is a big book with free shipping. Adding the normal marine profit markup, it is reasonable.

BUt you can always get for it from your friendly library.

Wow! Pre-orders for the book have been wonderful. It is now released and listed among the top five Sailing books in Hot New Releases on Amazon. I am pleased.

If not, perhaps your next book will be something of a cookbook and wine pairing advice for the "not so frugal mariner".
Sorry, no recipes; I don't use them. My cooking is based mainly on using carefully selected fresh ingredients as much as possible and combining them with creativity and care, using skills developed during more than half a century of cooking. Some of the stuff I learned while teaching in a culinary school certainly helps.

There is lots of information in the book on selecting and stowing fresh ingredients for extended passages.

I'm looking forward to the European adventures, the wines and the foods that will spawn the book!

Yeah, I guess pictures don't translate so well into words.

I'm working on an eBook at the moment, but the first quote I received for conversion was based on the number of pages, images and words in the book. It was so ridiculous that it would have forced the eBook price higher than the print edition.

I have gone looking for alternatives; a fixed-format, PDF book is likely to appear in the future.

I am told that the food pictures are not fattening.
Nor was the food aboard Sequitur fattening. During the voyage I lost 15 kilos and slimmed down to my mountaineering weight of the 1960s and 70s.

Re: SEQUITUR - The Book

I will be getting a copy.

Your voyage both inspired me and made me very very hungry.
