            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.
