            Sailing across an ocean needn't be just a fanciful dream. With this unique book it is a workable ambition, provided you have the right mindset. Drawing on wisdom from members of the Royal Cruising Club, the Cruising Club of America and Australia's Ocean Cruising Club, it gives un...matched access to the expertise that those planning to sail an ocean need to absorb. Personal accounts from highly experienced ocean sailors add colour and provide invaluable insights into real-life offshore cruising. Paul Heiney, himself a singlehanded ocean sailor, tackles every issue the would-be ocean sailor needs to consider: - Budgeting, including the type of boat you need - Good destinations and routes - Understanding weather patterns to make faster or easier passages - Pros and cons of singlehanded sailing, as well as sailing with families and children - Pros and cons of ocean sailing rallies - Important but often neglected issues: entertainment, swimming, fishing, cooking - Ways of keeping in touch with home - Dealing with practicalities from afar: mail, bills, prescriptions - Coping with problems that arise: equipment breakdowns, injuries, storms - How to readjust to life back on shore after the end of the voyage Successful, enjoyable ocean sailing is not just about mastering sailing skills, but about developing the right frame of mind to be comfortable and safe so far from shore. It will equip anyone thinking of sailing across an ocean with the level of self-reliance necessary to respond to anything that might happen, and ultimately help them find the confidence that will ensure a deeply satisfying ocean voyage.

            "Planes were rarely seen above the small Central Otago sheep-farming town of Ranfurly in the 1940s. Yet as a young boy, Tom Enright had a fascination with the skies that quickly developed into a longing to become a pilot. He joined the RNZAF as an engineer in 1951, and was sent t...o England at just 16 to attend the revered Royal Air Force college in Cranwell. Returning to New Zealand to join the Vampire fighter squadron in Ohakea, Tom became a famed member of the RNZAF aerobatic team. Later he became a flying commander at Wigram air base, before captaining a Sunderland flying boat to isolated communities in the vast South Pacific, often to the upper limits of the plane's endurance. From the near-catastrophic opening of Wellington airport to flying Boeing 747s into the world's biggest airports, this is Tom Enright's story of the mishaps, misadventures and high-altitude drama of a 45-year flying career"--Back cover.
