Another good read…

DSCF1842I just finished reading “A Passion for the sea” by Jimmy Cornell.  I was hooked from the beginning and understood completely his life and struggles in communist Romania, very similar to what we went through in Cuba. The resemblance is incredible!DSCF1843

This book has so much information that we’ll definitely keep it handy during our travels. His website,, is also full of information and it’s constantly being updated it and that’s a bonus!

We’d love to participate in any of the ARCs or World cruising rallies when our time comes. Even though Jimmy is not organizing them anymore they are still full of fun and it would be a tremendous experience.DSCF1844

This book is a must read for those like us planning to take the “blue road” and a warm distraction for the upcoming winter months.


PS: Pictures are from the book.

  1. Jimmy Cornells books are brilliant aren’t they. I’ve just read World Cruising Guide.


  2. As sailors we tend to read so many books so to get one that really stands out must mean it is really good. I will look out for it. Thank you for letting me know about it.


    • Hi Mark, we are always looking for good sailing books. We have a list (under favorites) of the ones that we have enjoyed and learned the most from. Jimmy’s book covers a broad variety of topics, experiences and recommendations that makes it unique. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
