really liked it

Rubadeau is preparing his old wooden sailing vessel for what may be the last summer sailing the family does together. His daughter is married, pregnant, and living in Alaska. His son is finishing up a high school program on the high seas (what a way! wish I'd known about such adventures when I was a kid!) and getting reading to start college.

The book glides back and forth between the present time and stories of how he got into sailing and many of his early adventures. Thrown in is alot of advice on preparing the boat, and things he'd done right and wrong througout his sailing career.

A very easy read. I really enjoyed the trip! The time leaps didn't leave me lost as to where we were. And I appreciated that he let it be known that this first person narrative was definitely his own viewpoint of events.
