A must for wannabe cruisers

101 is not so much a primer for preparing for your first longterm cruise as it is a guide for avoiding the emotional pitfalls of such a life style change. After nine years in the Sea of Cortez I have seen many sink into "the vasty deep" (Shakespeare) of marinas, booze, bankruptcy and divorce. Don't do that--read 101 instead!

A must have for the would be cruiser and dreamers alike!

As an experienced cruiser preparing for another long term cruise I found Cruising 101 to be one of the few books I consider a must have. There are plenty of techincal references out there and Cruising 101 fills in the emotional and attitude related issues related to cruising. Any one of the many suggestions in the book is well worth the price of the book. For would be cruisers this is the perfect book to give to friends and families. It expresses the amazing reality of the cruising lifestyle. For dreamers like me it is a shot of encouragement to hurry and get out there.

Humorous, insightful, and not just for Sailors

This fast read is not solely about sailing, it is about life and how to live it to the fullest---without spending a lot of money.Beginning their adventure aboard a small sailboat, the authors write with insight and sensitivity of what it takes to leave their safe life at home for the unknown. There are many humorous anecdotes, exposing the couple's own mistakes. Continuing their trip despite their setbacks, this book parallels life's own lessons. Initiative and persistance seem to be the underlying theme. For the sailor there are bonuses by reading the book. Like practical ways to outfit your own vessel. And how to be better prepared for your own sailing adventure. Couch potatoes beware! After reading CRUISING 101, you might just be motivated enough to seek your own life's ambitions.

This book offers dazzling insight into cruising lifestyles!

Superb! Nice to know there are options in life, and books like this to help you see the alternatives. Like Dove, Travels With Charlie and Tania Aebi's Maiden Voyage, Cruising 101 set me to dreaming! More importantly, Sullivan & Donnelly made me realize that not only is the cruising lifestyle accessible to anyone, but the lessons learned will work for any "alternative lifestyle" . . . as well as offering powerful insights into life in general.

We wish we read this book before we sailed to Mexico in 1993

This is the best general cruising book we have read and we have read most of them. A breakthrough book that covers the most important personal aspects of cruising. Women crew should buy this book for their partners. Absolutely worth every penny. See September San Diego Log and Lattitude 38 for review and excerpts
