The Cruising Woman’s AdvisorHow to Prepare for the Voyaging Lifeby Diana JessieDiana Jessie’s Cruising Woman’s Advisor is unique to the countless books on voyage preparation because it addresses specific concerns that women may face when thinking of starting such a life.
A circumnavigator herself, Jessie closely interviewed seven other women who had lived aboard a boat and sailed around the world, discussing with them hundreds of possible concerns and considerations. While acknowledging that voyaging is a mostly male-dominated culture, Jessie hopes to assuage women’s fears and encourage them to give it a try.
