This is the first book of a trilogy. Each book will be a collection of short stories about: boats, cultures, blue-water cruising, some history and my thoughts.
The dream was to single-hand a Vancouver 27 sailboat, Pleione, to Australia and then go diving on the Great Barrier Reef. After that the plan was open as to when and by what route I should return to Canada. In the end I had became hooked on the islands and countries in the Pacific Ocean.
An unexpected development in the five years of offshore cruising was the contact with certain people, different cultures and situations which had changed this author forever.
