Sailing, sailing, sailing. This book hit home in its capture of the infamous mid-life crisis (only the author was 20 years older than me when his hit).

I really enjoyed this story. It displayed the internal struggle the author had with leaving friends and family while still setting out for the internal quest he had for himself. All to often some crew will work out, while others... I really enjoyed the passage he made - sadly the problems he faced - but amazing he prevailed and overcame. Well done sir...
