Jerry Cardwell was an enthusiastic sailor for over 20 years, always in sailboats under 30 feet long. An academic and the author of several books in the social sciences, he completed the revisions for this manuscript in 1996, before dying of a heart attack.Review:
Jerry Cardwell believes that small trailerable sailboats can take sailors on big adventures. He believes that with a little imagination and suitable preparation, a small trailerable sailboat can be as much a magic carpet as any full-sized cruising boat. He argues that the little boat can be the same sort of self-contained world as the larger vessel, that with the right frame of mind the small boat cruise can be as exciting as a passage to Tahiti. I think he's right....This book can resurrect dreams and that's worth while. -- MidGulf Sailing, August 1993
