Re: "Alone Together" -- the Book Trailer

Just finished the book. If you like to read vicarious stories about sailing adventures, this is a fun read. How many of us would set off singlehanded for Hawaii and celebrate our 71st birthday aboard. Alone. I enjoyed it very much.

Any chance for an "Alone Again"?

Re: "Alone Together" -- the Book Trailer

Thank you. I am hoping to head off somewhere far next summer (2017) on the new boat, an Ericson 38.

The E-book and audio book should be out in a month or so. I myself wish there were more new books on cruising, as we once could expect. The failure of International Marine, the publisher who populated our shelves, doesn't help. I guess the gap is filled by videos, which although valuable and useful often make my teeth hurt for some reason.

Cheers,
Christian

I would love to write a book on cruising the Chesapeake by sail. It would be more of a story book rather than a cruising guide or gunkholer's guide but I simply don't have your storytelling/narrating ability, Christian.

Great news, and glad to see you're still contributing here, especially seeing the year of origination fo this thread. I recently found your vidlog of your second trip to Hawaii, but am holding off viewing it until I can give it my full attention.. TRULY enjoyed your first one and have recommended it to many friends and family members. A real inspiration.

All my best!

Re: "Alone Together" -- the Book Trailer

Lots to learn about almost everything when we submit to sailing long distances alone. The teaser is fabulous... The author-sailor is as well. This appears to be a book I need to read... Thank you for doing it.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
