I should have read the other reviews before buying this! On the positive side, the book is easy to read and does give some insight into cruising. Just like others, however, I found the negativity irritating. To be fair, the book is dated and a lot has changed in the last 20 years since this journey was undertaken, but.....my advice to the author would be, if you don't like other people, don't write about them! It also worries me that this gives sailing a bad press. We sail off the French coast and although there is the odd time when we meet the difficulties described, mainly it is a real pleasure and we meet lovely people. Please don't let this put you off!
