Adventure is not just for the young! Though "I own a boat!" was the opening phrase to their courtship and eventual married life, little did "Baby Boomer" couple, George and Pat Hospodar, know then that those words would lead to their making a year-long "journey of a lifetime" aboard their boat, Reflection, almost forty years later. This book welcomes and encourages not only fellow boaters, but also armchair adventurers, and dreamers of all ages to join them aboard as they share a light hearted, real-life account of their travels on the circumnavigation of the waterways of the eastern United States and Canada. In addition, for those who may consider making this journey themselves, the authors offer insights and tips on:? Routes? Anchorages? Navigation? Locking? Marinas? Free dockage? Low bridges? Fuel stops? Restaurants? Shopping? Points of interest and local history? Border crossings in Canada and the United States? Local marine weather websites and phone numbers.

For Gary Jobson—the three-time All American sailor, America’s Cup winner, Fastnet Race winner, and ESPN sailing commentator since 1985—sailing is life. In 2003, he was diagnosed with lymphoma, and here he relays the tumultuous diagnosis and treatments endured before the cancer went into remission. Through remission he remembers how his life has intertwined with some of the greatest sailors, how the sport has changed since his childhood, how the public view of sailing went through a revolutionary change with the advent of ESPN, how sailing can create lasting bonds of friendship that endure, and how sailing offers everything from the highest of adventures to the simplest of pleasures. This uplifting memoir also includes a foreword by Ted Turner.
