Re: Sailing failures
Why would someone write a book about a failed attempt at something, unless you failed spectacularly it would not be a very interesting story I think one would lick their wounds move back to shore and try to get on with their life.
I do remember someone who wrote about his adventures and I think shared it here a few years ago. He was self-deprecating saying how he was short and overweight and not mechanically inclined. Still, he took sailing lessons, bought a boat, fixed it up and took off cruising. He made it to The Sea of Cortez from San Francisco sailed for a couple of months and considered it enough of a success to write a book about it.
I think the stories of successes are often ones of multiple failures and perseverance leading to success.
