Announcing the long-awaited (by me, at least) publication of the book that began with this blog: A Satisfying Sail Around the World! Sure, if you’ve followed the blog you already know how it turns out 🙂 but it is still a good story, especially with the addition of bits that I wasn’t willing to write about at the time.
With the book comes a new website http://www.satisfyingsail.com. This blog is done, I think. Please check out the new site…consider buying a copy of the book…write a positive review (if you enjoy the book; otherwise pass the book on to someone else who might!)…leave comments and/or contact me via the website…follow the new blog there.
I’ll end this blog with a final thought. Our Earth is not very big. You can have a satisfying sail right around it in just a year or two. Aboard this small Earth ship is a crew of nearly eight billion humans. That’s a big crew, and it’s going to take a lot of cooperation to have a happy cruise into a shared future. We are the explorers — no chart, no book by Jimmy Cornell telling us what to expect along the way, no Rally with the support of other inhabited planets. Regardless of political boundaries, of language differences, of cultural differences, we are all “in the same boat.” Climate change makes this apparent. It’s time we started thinking like a crew…One Planet…One Future…
