About the Author

John Kretschmer has been a sailboat delivery skipper for over 25 years and has made over 100 deliveries. He is the author of Cape Horn to Starboard and Used Boat Notebook and has had articles published in numerous boating and travel magazines. He is a contributing editor to 'Sailing' and currently lives in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, with his wife Lesa and their two daughters.


John Kretschmer has an easygoing style that will ingratiate the reader from the very start of this book. It is a look at what a life at sea can mean to a person, and it is extremely well-written and easy to follow. Plenty of good insight into what can be expected when you are out there for days at a time. Consisting of anecdotes from his sailing career, this book is highly recommended for those who plan to go cruising. * Latitudes & Attitudes *
Wildly festooned with adventure, romance and outrageous characters. * Miami Herald *
Filled with a myriad of sea stories...all delivered with a wry and self-deprecating sense of humor. * Sailing *
I would highly recommend this book to anyone [with] a sense of adventure and romance. * Good Old Boat *
