From the Publisher:

"I know you'll want to read more after you finish Sailing a Serious Ocean. And be warned, you'll very likely want to sail with John, perhaps across an ocean." -- DALLAS MURPHY, AUTHOR OF ROUNDING THE HORN

After sailing 300,000 miles and weathering dozens of storms in all the world's oceans, John Kretschmer has plenty of stories and advice to share. John's offshore training passages sell out a year in advance and his entertaining presentations are popular at boat shows and yacht clubs all over the English speaking world. John's talent for storytelling enchants his audience as it soaks up the lessons he learned during his oftenchallengingvoyages. Now you can take a seat next to John--at a lesser cost--and get the knowledge you need to fulfill your own dream of blue-water adventure.

In Sailing a Serious Ocean, John tells you what to expect when sailing the oceans and shows how to sail safely across them. His tales of storm encounters and other examples of extreme seamanship will help you prepare for your journey and give you confidence to handle any situation—even heavy weather. Through his personal stories, John will guide you through the whole process of choosing the right boat, outfitting with the right gear,planning your route, navigating the ocean, and understanding the nuances of life at sea.

Our oceans are beautiful yet unpredictable—water that is at one moment a natural mirror for the glowing sun can turn into a foamy, raging wall of fury. John knows our oceans, and he is one of the best teachers of taming and enjoying them. Before you set off across the big blue, turn to John for his inspirational stories and hard-learned advice and discover the serious sailor in you.

From the Publisher:

You can learn what it takes to cross an ocean from a veteran sailor. In Sailing a Serious Ocean, author John Kretschmer uses his experiences and stories to show you what you will need to across an ocean or go around the world, in fair weather or foul. His true accounts of storms and other challenges at sea makes exciting reading and shows not only how sailboats should be handled when the chips are down, but how you should handle yourself. Learning how these boats respond to extreme circumstances will give you absolute confidence in your chosen boat's ability to keep you and your family safe in a storm. John sails the seas for a living - delivering boats across oceans and teaching the skills of passage making to other sailors on their boats or his own. In thirty years of seagoing, he has weathered 300,000 ocean miles and dozens of storms in all the world's oceans. He has as much seagoing experience in as many different boats as any sailor on the planet. And he is the perfect teacher to help you achieve your long-voyage dreams. "Anyone contemplating their first offshore passage, particularly with a small crew, should buy and study this latest book by renowned sailor and nautical writer John Kretschmer. Sailing a Serious Ocean is a highly entertaining and engaging book, and it's absolutely packed with lessons that might save a life one day. Even seasoned sailors will find useful information on nearly every page." (Windcheck Magazine, Nov 2013).
