From culture shock to cone-shell poison, what better way to experience the highs and lows of global ocean travel than through the words of the captain's mate, mother of two teenaged boys. Lona Gray chronicled every aspect of their sailing adventure from how to find and prepare meals, how to repair engines, how to avoid monsoons, how to educate teenagers, and how to stay sane living in small quarters far from all the comforts of stateside living. Through Lona's words, we see and feel Captain Bobby's frustrations and triumphs, we meet their new friends, and we experience the rush of unexpected weather.
