A TIMELY, UPLIFTING STORY ABOUT FOLLOWING ONE'S DREAM
The journey required positive thinking, humor, willpower and stubborn determination.
Friends questioned: Have you lost your mind? --Why on earth would you buy a sailboat in Turkey, of all places, when you live near the San Francisco Bay? -- Especially a boat you know nothing about? --Do you even know how to sail? With no prior sailing experience, and less than four weeks training on their sight-unseen sailboat, a father and son cast off from Turkey and head west into the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic. Their implausible story is packed with short episodes that draw the reader into the action: Stress as rookie sailors.--Never-ending funny situations that surrounded their travels, especially by way of mishaps.--Encounters with interesting and strange people, not to mention pirates.--Countless ports and countries they sailed into and passed.--The coming together of a father and son with full support of the oldest son, wife and mother.--All this while the father discovers life after retirement.
