    Default Lone Voyager by Maureen Jenkins

    Jenkins, M (2000) Lone Voyager: One Woman's Journey of Self-Discovery

    Follows the trials and tribulations of Maureen (Mo) Jenkins through a late introduction to sailing through dinghies, then a marriage breakup, construction of a steel Spray (with numerous parallels to Slocum) and then a single-handed Trans-Atlantic sail taking over three years. Some good insights into what any of us might go through in life... gets a bit repetitive towards the end... prepare for passage, check weather, something happens weatherwise, sea sick, make port... not much else you can say after about Leg 3! But a good read nevertheless.

    Not sure what else I can add! This book gives a good insight into what it must be like to sell up and live the dream of liveaboard cruising... giving an equal balance of the good and 'bad' bits. Interesting to see the use of SSB radio to keep in touch, some of the issues found in busy marinas when you arrive after having at sea for a bit, etc. Worth a read, but as I said, I feel it got a bit repetitive towards the end.

    Anyone got a copy of this?

    I read half of it in a b&b over the weekend but had to leave it behind.
