``The information Diana offers is not only useful and accurate, it also stresses an often ignored fact. . .cruising is a participation sport. The more both partners get involved, the larger the rewards.'' ( Pardey, Lin)Book Description:
Cruising books for men abound. For women, the choices have been woefully slim, limited to guides on cooling, sailing with kids, and being a good ``first mate.'' Every woman who wants to cultivate her own enthusiasm for cruising--as well as the man who wants his partner to share his dream--should read this path-breaking book: its the first to thoughtfully, honestly address women's real concerns about the cruising life? Diana B. Jessie, who has sailed nearly 100,000 miles with her husband, draws on her own experiences to provide insightful advice to women contemplating short-term cruising or long-distance voyaging. In addition, the book includes extensive interviews with 2.2 prominent women cruisers--among them Patience Wales, in their unique perspectives on what women must know to be safe, happy, and satisfied while cruising.
