This is the book we needed when we were deciding whether to give up our jobs and sail off round the world. There are many guides explaining the skills and techniques of sailing a yacht, fitting out, maintenance, and actually living aboard. There are even more about places to go and experiences you might have. There are very few that help you decide whether it is a practical option for you, and give a broad outline of the strategy you need to turn an exciting dream into a rewarding reality. Here we present a high level overview and treat the subject as a project that can be planned and executed. We also explain the rewards and costs, financial and in sheer life experience. Anyone who has an interest in voyaging aboard an ocean going yacht will gain some surprising insights. Unusually it is written from the perspective of people without a background in sailing but who decided to take a career break for a few years, learn to sail, then get on and do it.
