9781484890608: Crossing An Ocean Under Power, 10th Anniversary Edition

Sailors have crossed oceans for centuries, but the era of couples cruising the world in small powerboats is just beginning. The author starts out with limited long-range boating skills, but a strong desire to learn them. As he chronicles the trip across the Atlantic, he shares his parallel journey from "coastal cruiser" to "ocean crosser." Readers learn these same lessons with each passing page as Sans Souci, the Williams’ boat, travels as part of the first Atlantic powerboat rally—a fleet of 18 small power boats averaging just 50’ in length, owned and operated mostly by retired couples. In this "Beginner’s Guide to Crossing Oceans," Ken’s honest, entertaining style will keep you turning pages as you travel with the crew of Sans Souci to experience life at sea: satisfying work, warm camaraderie, and, memorable adventure. This 10th Anniversary Edition adds new details, color images, and retrospective insights from author Ken Williams, other rally participants, Nordhavn CEO Dan Streech, and Nordhavn's co-founder and the Atlantic Rally's creator, Jim Leishman.
