There be No Dragons
How to Cross a Big Ocean in a Small Sailboat
By (author) Reese Palley
There be No Dragons by Reese Palley
Book DescriptionMost sailors dream of journeying to foreign ports, but many are held back by fears both real and imagined. However, as Reese Palley explains, sailing close to the shore is considerably more dangerous than voyaging across the sea. There Be No Dragons is intended to encourage those timid of the deep oceans and to inspire the confidence necessary to set sail across the wide dark seas of the world. Palley completed a fifteen year circumnavigation and his essential and entertaining guide now available for the first time in paperback, discusses easily learned skills and inexpensively acquired equipment, all of which are requisite for safe sailing.
