Women On Board Cruising
Twenty-five Women Share Their
Twenty-five seasoned women boaters including editor, and long-distance cruiser, Lisa Targal Favors of Traverse City, are sharing the trials and tribulations of life aboard in the newly released book, Women On Board Cruising. Conceptualized, edited and published by Ms. Favors, the book is designed to inspire and inform women and their significant others who are planning on – or just considering – spending an extended period of time on the water.
The contributors humorously recount their very personal experiences and openly share life lessons learned about this little-known lifestyle. Several women tell their story with a rare, revealing vulnerability. Not all initially welcomed the thought of life within the confines of a boat but were cajoled by partners who had a greater desire and competence for this type of adventure. From doing the “Loop” (a boat trip circumnavigating the Eastern United States from the heartland rivers to the North Atlantic seaboard and Great Lakes) to sailing around the world, their stories are sure to warm the hearts of male and female readers alike.
“Questions! Doubts! You have so many before you set out! Well, just when you thought there was no one out there who understood you, along comes this awesome book, filled with warm women’s voices offering clever advice, and helpful been-there-felt-that reassurance. It’s like sitting down with a cup of tea and a support group of experienced fellow cruisers who can’t wait to show you the ropes, and how cruising changed their lives and priorities,” notes Bernadette Bernon of BoatU.S. Magazine and Cruising World in her review of Women On Board Cruising.
