One of the Best Sailing Books for Adventure and Inspiration

ALAMEDA, Calif. – Author David Case’s “Sailing South” is one of the best sailing books that will inspire you to get out there. Whether you’re looking to do some armchair sailing during the off-season, or stock up your floating library with sailing stories for summer cruising, this is the best sailing book for adventure and inspiration.

“Sailing South” is a first-hand account of daring ocean adventures, nautical thrillers, and meditative musings about life at sea. Captain David Case is a seasoned pilot, sailor, mercenary adventurer and a man for all seasons who has chased the sun and gamboled among the stars in most of oft-time perilous nooks and crannies of the world.

In the fall of 1979, Vickie and her husband Dave Case set out from San Francisco in a 29′ sailboat built from a semi-kit. They harbor hopped down the coast to Manzanillo, Mexico before bravely heading the 2700 miles over open ocean to the Marquesas. Using a compass, sextant, and sum log they covered the distance in twenty-two days. Then it was off to Tahiti, the Society Islands, Rarotonga, and Pago Pago before heading back through Honolulu, then more excitement sailing home to San Francisco. His writing introduces readers to everything from bluewater sailing’s challenges to navigation basics, gales, and sheer fatigue that is inherent in such an ambitious journey.

The author thinks that their sailing experience was very primitive by today’s standards. Weather and mechanical problems were a constant challenge. Without the best electronics, high-end engine or gadgetry, both Vickie and David accomplished remarkable things through sheer endurance and resourcefulness. He added that the people they met along the way made the journey a lot worthwhile.

Both starting mariners and even the most experienced old salts will discover numerous utilizations of a thick reference book for pretty much all issues of seamanship. His account is both inspiring and a reminder to slow down, appreciate the beauty of nature, and be present with those you love.

“Sailing South” can be both a reading material/manual and a psychology book.  Giving it a thrilling insider’s quality while at the same time giving the ability and certainty to get your feet wet and become the cruising professional you’ve for a long while been itching to be. Grapples away!
