We sailed alongside SV Apsara for some of their adventures on SV Sassy Dancing It was so much fun to revisit our ports of call and our shared experiences meeting people, eating delicious meals, imbibing in rum drinks and exploring beautiful locations Thanks for chronicling a once in a lifetime experience and sharing it I bought the book because of a sail charter in the Exumas, but did not find it all that helpful for that It was a reasonable account of a life transition from normal shore based to s cruising life.
