YACHTING STORIES HAVE OFTEN DESCRIBED DIFFICULT PASSAGE OVER THE OCEANS OR THE BEAUTY OF REMOTE ISLANDS... THIS COLLECTION OF OCEANIC TALES IS VERY DIFFERENT! Short Stories for the Daring Yachtsman is about the lives of actual yachts people who sail along the coast of Mexico.

You may call them wanderers of the sea, for they are not tied down to a port as many yachtsmen are.

They instead meet on the docks, in the cafes and cockpits, telling stories of future sailing plans and adventures on boats and through weather on the ocean.

Many even prepare for a cross-pacific voyage.

Things never go as planned. There will always be surprising outcomes and tragic endings. But they will become sailors through the experience of crossing an ocean that will change their lives forever...

You are invited to share in these amazing tales and partake in the greatness of their courage and lives at sea.
