Since it was first published, Sell Up and Sail has become the bible for those cruising as a way of life, whether short or long-term. It tells you all you need to know - and at what stage you need to know it - from the practicalities and pitfalls of early retirement, choosing a boat to live in, looking after her on the move, and organising your finances, to preventing ill health afloat, choosing suitable cruising grounds, achieving successful crew interaction and provisioning in far flung places. The fourth edition has been updated to take account of the recent far-reaching changes in bureaucracy, navigation and communications which have changed the life of the typical long-term cruiser. Sell Up and Sail is the complete kit for the cruising lifestyle: whether to coral islands or inland waterways, it is all here in this witty and readable book.

About the Author:

Bill & Laurel Cooper sold up and embarked on their wandering life more than thirty years ago, and have talked to countless people wanting to do likewise. Bill is a retired seaman and lifelong yachtsman. Laurel is an artist, who was sailing before she could walk, but was somewhat surprised to find herself at sea as a way of life. Their first yacht Fare Well was largely their own work and took them five years to build. Bill and Laurel are the authors of the popular Watersteps Through France, Watersteps Round Europe and Back Door to Byzantium, all published by Adlard Coles Nautical.

Review:

'A must, whether or not you're serious about doing so' Motor Boat & Yachting 'Advice on every aspect of cruising you could think of' Yachting World 'Sailing Bible' The Times 'First rate reading for serious planners and hopeless dreamers alike' Practical Boat Owner
