She became instantly famous with Maiden Voyage, the best-selling book she wrote about the solo trip. In over twenty years of cruising by herself and with family, and leading ten-day flotillas to charter destinations in a professional capacity, she has gathered many anecdotes, observations, opinions, cautionary tales and advice. Indeed, she has been around. She was hired as a columnist in 1997 by the fledging sailing magazine Latitudes and Attitudes. ?Casual and friendly in its approach to the sailing world, the magazine's tone provided me with a place to explore my own reflections on what I already knew and continued to learn about the sailing way of life and how to share it all with others.? In this, her first book since Maiden Voyage, there is something for the armchair sailor dreaming about sailing off one day, as well as for the sailor in the cockpit actively chasing those horizons....

    This book is actually a series of reprinted essays from Tania originally published in nautical magazines. They are very well done. Unlike her first book, Maiden Voyage, Tania writes this book all by herself and she is, indeed, a fine writer. For women it is a fun read. Her chapter on "hair" maintenance on a boat in humidity, with limited fresh water is a hoot. Salt water on a leg (post shaving) is a uniquely female experience...made worse in Tahiti, where the women are gorgeous with long locks of hair on their head, but unfairly (per Tania) none on their legs. For those interested, she is currently sailing in the South Pacific with her two sons for six months. Check out the Boat US site under cruising logs to folow her progress if you are interested.

    Really enjoyed her first book about her solo circumnavigation of the globe at age 18, and look forward to this follow up.
