For a woman considering the cruising lifestyle, the questions are endless. What is cruising really like? Can I do it? Will I like it? will it be horrible, or wonderful? Longtime sailor and circumnavigator Diana Jessie provides advice to women contemplating short-term cruising or long-term voyaging. She gives unique insights into a plethora of women's concerns, including: Why We Go . . . Cruising Roles and Relationships . . . The Right Boat . . . What Do I Need to Learn? . . . If My Partner Falls Overboard, How Do I Rescue Him? . . . Learning for Independence . . . Fearing the Weather Ahead . . . Isn't It Dangerous Out There? . . . Medical Preparation and Planning . . . Children On Board . . . Family Issues and Events . . . Staying in Touch . . . Career Planning and Employment . . . Bathing, Hair Care, Skin Care, Clothing . . . Sex at Sea . . . Provisioning for Cruising

To provide a broad perspective, Diana Jessie includes the opinions of noted women cruisers, including: Barbara Merritt, contributing editor of Cruising World magazine; Lin Pardey, longtime cruiser and author of several cruising books; Dawn Riley, noted America's Cup and Whitbread sailor; Patience Wales, two-time circumnavigator and editor of SAIL magazine; plus seventeen other women, from novices to world-renowned sailors.

Review:

``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.
