Have you ever wondered what it is like to cut the dock lines and sail off into the sunset? This book has the answer. Bob Bitchin lived aboard and sailed the world over 30 years. In that time he wrote hundreds of articles about what it is like. The storms, the crossings, and the hundreds of mini-adventures. In this book he doesn't tell you about a particular voyage, what he does is tell you what it feels like to live these adventures. Hit by an 80 foot wall of water, see the light at the end of a storm, what it's like being hit at 2 AM by a waterspout in the Mid-Atlantic, and how it feels to arrive in the South Pacific, or an island in Greece. This book will give you an insight why men & women go out where the water is deep: to the get the full enjoyment of sailing the world.
For over 35 years Bob Bitchin has lived aboard and sailed the world. His search for adventure has inspired tens of thousands to ''get out and do it.'' In his past he created such diverse magazines as BIKER, TATTOO, Latitudes & Attitudes and has articles that have appeared in Forbes, New Look, Easyriders and dozens more. Fo five seasons his television show ''Latitudes & Attitudes'' aired nationally showing the lifestyle of the live-aboard cruiser. He knows what it is like living that lifestyle, and has a way of telling about it that fills the mind with adventure and the heart with longing to get out there and go.
This collection of stories show what it is truly like once you have cut the dock-lines and sailed out there, where sailors belong. With over 100,000 miles of sailing experience, his stories are based on facts that have been experienced, and told in words that sailors and laymen alike will understand and appreciate. Aside from his writing and TV shows, he created the Share The Sail concept that teaches others what it is like when you are cruising, before they ''sell the farm'' so they can see if the lifestyle is truly for them.
