The author discusses some ideas about cruising yachts and cruising yachtsmen and the preparations and paraphernalia necessary for extended cruising. His purpose is to illustrate how simple it can be to embark on a successful voyage provided one has a good boat, the right temperament, a fair degree of seamanship, and a minimum of sophisticated gear. These observations are based on personal experience including a four-year cruise from Hawaii to the Chesapeake via the Red Sea.
