Dennison, welcome aboard. I see you are an author as well. Looks like you've spent some time in the jungle. If you have the time and are so inclined, check out my author page and novel. What and where do you sail? Steve

Larry (hal9000i) Hi guys, I don't sail, never been on a sailing boat but am interested in sailing and ships etc. I know nothing about it all bit am hoping to learn. I recently visited the Tall Ships at Hartlepool which was cool!

Debbie Zapata Hi, my name is Debbie. I only sail in my armchair, the same way I do most of my traveling, but I love books about ocean journeys and am glad to have found this group. Recently finished Jack London's Son Of The Sun, and just now I am marooned with Robinson Crusoe. Saw a lot on the Sailing Cruising book list that I want to read and of course on the bookshelves here too. Can't wait to start my next armchair cruise! Thanks much.

Jackie Parry | 17 comments Hi Debbie, it's very smart being an armchair sailor! :-) To add to your book list of reads - I am about to publish (probably in November) - my next book Of Foreign Build - it is about my 9 years living on a 33 ft boat . . . quite an experience and how I changed from a Corporate girl to a sea gypsy woman. Lots of details on would love to hear some of your recommendations too.

Hi Debbie. Welcome aboard. As you can see it's a small group, but then you know what they say about acorns. If you have a sailing book to add to our booklist, please feel free to do so.

Debbie Zapata Hi Steve! Thanks! Well, I know what they say about oak trees: a nut that held its ground! I'm willing to be a sailing nut. =))

Jackie Parry | 17 comments Hi Ag, we sailed through Jacksonville, some years ago, when we did the Great Loop. Would like to hear more about your boat and travels etc.

Emmanuelle | 3 comments Hi all,
I am new to Goodreads, to this group and to so many things as I self-published a children book which is now available on Amazon

If you are dreaming about sailing off with your family or want to introduce the idea to your kids, if you want to dream about exotic islands, if you want to sail away few minutes, Merlin's Voyage might be your book or a great Christmas present for a little sailor around you! Fair winds

Tarquilla | 2 comments I'm in the middle of Sir Francis Chichester's Gypsy Moth circles the world - he was one tough cookie!

Jackie - the Great Loop must have been quite an adventure

message 16: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Parry | 17 comments Hi Tarquilla, Chichester certainly was amazing. The Great Loop was fantastic, one of the best years of my life. People were so incredibly friendly and helpful, complete strangers would lend us their car! Seeing different states and inland America, oh Alabama was such fun, Chicago so funky - and then there's the Mississippi! The nine year journey a ten metre boat was so fantastic, it took me 15 years to write the book - I had to get it just right!
