One of the first books
on cruising that I ever read(aged15) was 'Rosie Darling' by Rosie Swale. Wonderful adventure on a small catamaran
Inspirational is Northern Magic by Diane Stuemer. She, her husband and three boys circumnavigated and the book tells the tale of how the experience changed them as a family
and as individuals.
Bernard Moitessier, The Long Way.
Libby Purvis, One Summer's Grace. A tale of a family
circumnavigating Britain. Great writer with a caustic wit!
I greatly enjoyed the DVD
by David and JaJa martin 'Ice Blink'. Their philosophical analysis of the reality of sailing with a family id intelligent and thoughtful.
Voyaging the Pacific by Miles Hordern is elegantly written, and for me, best summed up the realities both good and bad of ocean sailing.
And I always enjoy rereading Hal Roth, the Pardeys and the Smeetons, all dated now but full of wise and sage advice and hints...
