“I ordered the book on Amazon and have read about 30 pages so far and am enjoying it. The book is incredibly well written and entertaining. I noticed my husband picked it up and started carrying it around with him. I figured I would get up early this morning and do a little reading! Congratulations Jackie great book, I would highly recommend it to anyone.” Robin Araujo

Nine dollars! [for an ebook] ya gotta be joking. At that price you should sell thousands. It’s a no-brainer. Petrea McCarthy Yacht Rigging and Maintenance. (Petrea’s full review was in the March edition of Cruising Helsman magazine- Australia).

Highly recommended.’ Brian D

‘Cruisers’ AA is essential reading for anyone setting sail on the high seas. There is a wealth of information on everything from boat
equipment, maintenance,navigation to house keeping and buying & cooking of food. The attractive lay out and many photos for demonstration or things of interest make for a most enjoyable read. As do the short stories, some provide guidance, others are sharing the journey with the reader. This very interesting book is to be enjoyed by sailors & landlubbers alike and I recommend it to all adventurers.’ Anne Norris.
