Meet the Author

Making the most of his political science degree, Ray Jason became San Francisco's first street juggler back in the early '70s. But apparently juggling torches, machetes and bowling balls became a bit too boring, so he took up the sea gypsy life. Since 1985 he has sailed his beautiful 30-foot sloop, Aventura, over 20,000 miles - most of them single-handed.
