Book Review: Ocean of Insight: A Sailor’s Voyage from Despair to Hope

Filed under: General — Richard Jordan @ 4:28 pm

My attention dirfts to a conversation some months back. “Have you scared yourself yet?” our boat broker Tom Harney from Jordan Yachts asked me. We crossed paths in Florida months after buying Wild Hair.
“No, not really,” I remarked. Dave concurred. “We’ve gotten into some pickles, but we’ve gotten ourselves out of them,” I boast.
I guess tonight — more than a year into our planned five-year voyage aboard Wild Hair — is my first real sail. I laugh. Sailing is horrible.

Tom Harney of Jordan Yachts scored a small but nice cameo in Heather Mann’s spiritual journey on her Hylas 45.5. The trip is full of hilarious sea stories with a few pretty scary situations. The scariest is probably when pirates follow Heather and husband Dave. Luckily they escape, but all cruisers should buy a copy of the book for good tips on what to do and not to do.

Heather, a struggling Buddhist, is able to get into adventure after adventure under the watchful eye of what she calls “the Great Atlantic Teacher.” Even on her final trip coming back as she muses on how much better they have gotten at cruising, she manages to once again humble herself. Heather and her patient and resourceful husband, Dave make a great team. She may not always be the one to get them into a bad situation, but Dave always is clever enought to get them out. If you want to go sailing with your wife or husband, this book will convince you to go together and renew your romance.

And then there is Dinghy the cat. We had a the pleasure of meeting Dinghy at Jordan Yachts. This is no ordinary cat. What cat have you seen walk on not just a leash but full-on harness? And what happens when they visit a island full of cats? Once again you will have to read the book to find out.

A personal inspection of this novel is highly recommended.

"I recently bought a Morris Linda 28 sailboat via the web. A large purchase for me and I'd never bought a boat remotely before and was a bit nervous about the process ahead. I live in New Hampshire and the boat was in Florida. Tom Harney of Jordan Yachts in Fort Lauderdale FL was handling the sale. I cannot speak highly enough of his and their professionalism. They accurately described the boat, assisted me with a list of local surveyors, coordinated the sale, de-rigged and packed the boat for shipment. At my end the yard that took delivery said nothing had moved in shipment and everything was well boxed and documented. Communication was frequent and accurate with plenty of advice keeping me out of trouble. Can't say enough. I would work with them again in a heartbeat." - TM, SV Highland Fling
