About the Author

John Kretschmer is a writer, sailor, philosopher, lecturer and businessman whose successful sail-training business takes a uniquely philosophical but hands-on approach to offshore sailing. He is the author of four highly regarded non-fiction books, as well as hundreds of articles for the sailing press, Life and the LA Times.


A remarkable and very enjoyable cocktail of blue water, action and wisdom. Kretschmer is a fine writer and an inspiration. * Tristan Gooley *
[A] poignant, yet relatable tale ... Kretschmer tells an insightful and quietly triumphant story. * Sail Magazine *
[E]vocative and profound ... indispensable ... fascinating ... A must-have for any sailor's library. * The Florida Times Union *
'Kretch' as his friends call him is a successful businessman, a compelling lecturer and raconteur and a splendid writer. This new book reminds me of Joseph Conrad's first book The Mirror of the Sea, which was a memoir from his life as a ship captain and a refection on what a life at sea can teach an observant and thoughtful person. Kretch just may by our own modern-day Conrad, which in my book is no small thing. If you love sailing, life and good writing, you'll enjoy Sailing to the Edge of Time.. * Blue Water Sailing *
Kretschmer's style as a storyteller is well defined, but in Sailing to the Edge of Time, readers will find hints of a new side of the sailor, one that contemplates bigger questions * Sailing Magazine *
Sailing to the Edge of Time is amusing, poignant, terrifying and inspiring all in one, offering riveting accounts of [the author's] adventures around the world, from crossing the Atlantic and the Pacific to a narrow escape from a coup in Yemen. -- Charity de Souza * Trips to Discover: Best Travel Books of 2020 *
Filled with all the adventure one expects from someone who has sailed around the world, it is also a poignant and inspirational account of how to live your life to the fullest. Kretschmer is not only a sailor; he's a philosopher, and if you're at all interested in thinking as deep as the ocean, this book is perfect for you. * Travel Pulse *
