This will make you laugh out loud from the first chapter. Jennifer has written a refreshingly frank, nuts-and-bolts yet humorous and exciting account of a lengthy circumnavigation (the book spans 40,000 miles and 17 years) with her husband Nik, that tells it exactly as it is – no frills.

For many who have been there and know just how boat-life really is, this book will remind you of how liveaboard cruising can be both incredible, amazing, disheartening and depressing all at the same time.

Both old-time cruisers and those who have yet to venture offshore will enjoy this book, which is a rattling good read and one you won’t want to put down.

Jennifer tells it how it really is, which is what any wanabee cruiser needs to know, especially in these times of glossy YouTube vlogs…selling liveaboard cruising as the ultimate dream.

If you want to know what it’s truly like to be a blue-water, liveaboard sailor, read this book – you won’t regret it.
