The Voyager's Handbook

The Voyager's Handbook by Beth Leonard

We inherited this book when we purchased our sailboat, Bristol Rose, complete with an inscription from Beth. This book contains a wealth of advice and good ideas collected from their circumnavigation on Silk, a Shannon 38.

We emailed Beth and she replied "Wow - my book has passed on to a "second" generation! Your e-mail makes real the idea that my books will probably outlive me..."

Beth Leonard and her husband Evans, have since moved up to a larger boat and are currently 30 miles north of the Straits of Magellan, still cruising and writing.
