About this title


This book is written in the hope that those timid of the deep oceans might have fears allayed and thus be encouraged to set sail across the wine dark seas of the world. Reese Palley, by his own account a sailor of no great skill, has managed to circle the globe, taking fifteen years to do so, without serious happenstance. If he can do it, then the basest amateur, armed with the simplest of information and a small, sturdy boat, should be able to follow in his wake.

About the Author:

Reese Palley is an alumnus of the New School and the London School of Economics. After a successful career as an art dealer, Palley, in his late fifties, decided to go sailing. He made three transatlantic crossings and a circumnavigation in his 46-foot Ted Brewer designed sailboat, Unlikely VII. He is the author of The Porcelain Art of Edward Marshall Boehm, Unlikely Passages and numerous articles in sailing magazines.
