Despite the problems with Apocalypso, we are smiling because of this nice Easter Surprise…
Our book “Get Real, Get Gone” had its best sales day on Easter Saturday and is now the No.1 best selling sailing book in the UK and No.2 in the US.
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we would like to say thanks to everyone who bought it and contacted us with their thoughts and kind wishes.
To be mentioned in the same dispatches as the great Annie Hill and the pioneering Pardeys is truly an honour and has made this the most fabulous Easter!
The feedback from Amazon has been overwhelmingly positive as well. Here are a couple of the latest reviews (and these are just the recent ones!)
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to provide such fabulous reviews. We are extremely happy Easter Bunnies.
If you have read every book except this one about buying a boat and heading over the horizon, you haven’t read the best one yet. Extremely practical, and doesn’t practice the kind of willful ignorance that is so often displayed in other books of the genre regarding the seeming requirement to have a spouse who is an expert sailor and mechanic. The wonderful bonus is that it frequently really funny. You might not agree with 100% of the conclusions and recommendations, but it is clear that the authors are providing guidance based on experience and observation, not commandments.
Get thee hence and buy a copy!
I cannot express enough how wonderful this book is! ‘Get Real and Get Gone’ should come standard with every sailboat purchased! Not only is it full of necessary, relevant and helpful information, but it is presented in a way that both newbies and veterans can learn from and understand. The pages are filled with wisdom, experience, ingenuity, passion and humor! This is the beginner (and even experienced) sailor’s bible.
Not only is the book fantastic, Rick and Jasna are wonderful too! Taking time out of there sea gypsy life to not only respond to my email but answer all my questions in detail absolutely sealed the deal for me! I hope to see many more books from these amazing people and maybe run into them on the high seas!
