Does anyone know of a good book for a first timer planning on sailing the loop?
I have a 40' O'Day and will be solo sailing it

Re: Book on Sailing the Loop ??

I just finished reading one but my old mind doesn't let me remember for sure the name. I'm guessing it was "Honey, Let's Buy a Boat". I went to Amazon.com and put 'Great Circle Loop' in the search box and came up with it and another that's sitting on my desk at work waiting to be read.......LL

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, jtallen2489.

Just which “Loop” would you be interested in sailing?

Re: Book on Sailing the Loop ??

"Adrift", by Steven Callahan comes to mind. A bit more positive, "Atlantic Circle", by Kathryn L. Knight. It is a long way, and the conditions can be nastier than you might think. An online friend I know almost didn't make it across last year.
