A well researched gracious and truthful account Georgian Bay TodayWhen her husband proposed living on a boat full time Debra Cantrell wondered what other women in her position had done and began a five year study to find out what choices they had made and how it had all worked out The result is Changing Course a guidebook for navigating this odyssey No matter what the outcome each woman was strengthened by the experienceIn an era when downshifting is common and people are considering the benefits of simplified living Changing Course is both timely and practical Ms Cantrell's survey of 107 women both surprised and overwhelmed me The woman pared down their lives to spend varying lengths of time living aboard a sailboat with their partners discovering paths and places that cannot be experienced in life on land I bought this book for its sub title A Woman's Guide to Choosing the Cruising Life I was going to present it to my wife as a part of my gentle persuasion hoping it would help me to encourage her to begin to feel the excitement I feel about the prospect of spending a part of our lives together on a boatThe next day on my way out to ride the bus to work I grabbed it and began to read If I had been walking while reading I would have been stopped in my tracks I have read a lot of magazine articles about sailing places to sail and places not to sail and passed some of them on to my wife with hopes that she would brush up against some of my enthusiasmHowever Changing Course gave me a different and robust excitement about the prospect of the two of us casting off the land and sailing 'round a bit As I read I was unable to restrain my excitement and found myself constantly interrupting her to read some of the wonderful parts and passages This concise little book will answer most uestions about the fears and mysteries of cruising the oceans of the world and living a different and rewarding life with the one you love
