". . . the essential first step for all couples planning to sail away; this is a must-read."--Paul and Sheryl Shard, authors of Sail Away! "Life afloat nourishes my heart, my head, body, and soul in ways that have enhanced all aspects of my life personally and professionally. I have discovered ways of sustaining my sense of purpose both on land and while cruising that have enabled me to embrace the cruising lifestyle."--Debra Ann Cantrell The human quest for change is constant. As existing dreams are realized, new dreams take their place. On one level, Changing Course is a straightforward, step-by-step examination of pursuing your partner's dreams and joining the seagoing life. On a deeper, more spiritual level, it addresses the levels of change we encounter in everyday life and how--through the experiences of numerous women who have gone before--we can rise through those levels of change to achieve ultimate fulfillment and satisfaction.Changing Course chronicles the odyssey of making a major lifestyle change from land to sea from a woman's perspective. The moving and often poignant thoughts, feelings, and experiences of more than 100 women illustrate the decision-making process that enabled most of them to move from resisting the change proposed by their partners to embracing the cruising life. It is an inspiring examination of the highs, lows, and day-to-day drama of changing one's life in a fundamental way. From the common fears that prevent individuals from taking risks to the interpersonal dynamics that affect couples and relationships, this one-of-a-kind book explores the phenomenon of change and the growing lifestyle change movement. This thought-provoking and highly personal book explores what women stand to gain when they set forth on such a journey--and what they stand to lose if they do not.
  • Yes, this is a quick read. Started reading and couldn't put it down because I've been down this passage before and now looking forward to going back to the cruising life as a single woman. Really good questions are posed about the lifestyle and the options are explored in detail. The title is misleading...it is not about women who choose this life, it's more about coercing women into making this choice. I give those women credit, they must really love their partner. I gained a lot of insight though, from the various perspectives highlighted through womens stories. It was rather validating knowing that I have been through each of the scenarios in my younger days with my husband, although I was the 'rare' sailor who had the boat, then the partner. I found only one small mention, and was considered 'rare' to be a woman already a sailor/instructor no less. I think the author has not interviewed enough women. More and more women are going alone, just like I've seen so many men go it alone. Single-handing is a joy, a special breed...this book presumes that a woman has to go with a man/partner...this is not true...the walls of male~female conformity are coming down~ Women do need to realize there is a whole world out there beyond the shadows of co-dependency if you're up for the challenge! Two competent sailors on board is a blessing! I've spent a lifetime training men and women to sail and it is a universal sport/lifestyle...out there in the wind and waves, gender does not predetermine skills.
    Face the wind~ take the helm~ and set your own course!

  • This is a great book for both men and women who are considering sailing. It gave me many things to think about as we start planning our next phase. It wasn't expensive and it's an easy read, so why not. More information is better when it comes to making a life changing decision like giving up everything (or not) to set sail.

    I enjoy that a woman wrote this book about other women making the same decisions. Most sailing books were written by men, about men, from a man's point of view. It was very refreshing and my husband enjoyed it as well!

  • I have met a wonderful man who is retired and cruising. Heading into retirement myself, we are talking seriously about making this our life together. I need all the information I can get to help me decide if this is the life for me and, if so, what I should expect - both good and bad. This book is extremely informative!

  • I got my husband to read this as well and it helped us with communication about issues we hadn't really identified yet. However some of the scenarios of overkill. My husband said that a lot of these men were jerks. and yes they were but everyone has different issues so I understand why they might have been included. Its a fairly fast read and you will see yourself in any number of the descriptions. Glad I read it.

  • Ms. Cantrell's book is an entertaining read with plenty of solid information. Subtitled A Woman's Guide to Choosing the Cruising Life, it is a very good book for men and women to read. This couple spent two years sailing through the Bahamas, then down the Caribbean Islands. The author speaks of the people they encounter as being the richest part of the experience. The author goes into many recipes collected along the way, but the route planning information is more worthwhile, from this reader's point of view.
    I liked the survey information of people doing this kind of cruising - very informative. This book shows that it is possible to take a couple years off, and go on a nice, long boat trip. Not everyone is interested in a trip around the world, and this book shows us a realistic account of their island cruise. Well worthwhile, and worth more than the modest price charged! Five Stars!

  • It brings me no joy to be so critical about a book, but I finally just stopped reading this one. This reads more like a research report or science project that about anything to do with discovering change. The book is so withdrawn from it's subjects it repeatedly calls these ladies husbands' their mates. I got through half the book only to learn it repeats itself, its data and its findings over and over again from one survey respondent to the next. If you're into research, this appears to be an incredibly well researched book (five year study), but the author fails miserably to make it interesting. If you're looking for an exciting read about new adventures in lifestyles on the water ... don't waste your money on this book. I'm really sorry I did.

  • I bought Changing Course for my wife but I read the book in parallel with her so that I could stay in touch with her feelings as the book progressed. Changing Course by its nature is very positive from the first thoughts of cruising through to the end of the cruise and returning to land. Cruising Life certainly does not shy away from some of the more difficult questions and fears a person might have when asked by an enthusiastic (usually male) partner to toss everything aside and go cruising. This book gave perspective that can only be gained from talking in detail with hundreds of people that have been there before.

    While you may want to criticize some of the statistics because of the population from where they are derived, the narrative and the personal accounts from people that have been there before make this book a great tool for answering some of those pressing "what if" questions.

  • Just what I was looking for! I needed to hear that it was going to be ok from other women who've done it. I needed to hear the advice on "how to" from women.
