New cruising eBook: Best stories from Caribbean Compass


'Tales of the Caribbean - but maybe not this one'    .

If you love reading sailing tales you're going to love this new eBook, 'Best Stories from Caribbean Compass' compiled by Sally Erdle and Rona Beame. It's full of outstanding stories by cruisers, of cruisers and for cruisers!

This just launched collection features outstanding cruising tales, all from the Caribbean — from the dramatic true story of a woman falling overboard to hurricane survival to a hilarious black-market expedition to a hair-raising journey on a local bus. These stories span a vibrant region, from St. Croix to Cartagena and from Barbuda to Guatemala. Cruising cooks share gourmet galley secrets and poets offer rocking rhymes for island times.

Sailors spin yarns about coves where few have dropped the hook, as well as providing offbeat looks at islands everyone 'knows'. Cruising Life is a first-hand, insider’s look at the unique lifestyle of wandering the Caribbean aboard your own floating home.

The 49 stories in Cruising Life were written by cruisers, both professional writers and amateurs, for Caribbean Compass, the monthly magazine that boaters say is a 'must read' for anyone sailing in, or planning to visit the Caribbean.

Editor Sally Erdle says, 'We’re excited to now offer this lively and far-ranging selection of original Caribbean cruising writing to readers around the world. Old salts will grin with recognition, and those just casting off will be inspired!'

What recreational marine publishing insiders are saying about ‘Cruising Life’:

'I can say without hesitation that the new book ‘Cruising Life’ is packed with more first-hand knowledge of what you will find once you arrive in the Caribbean than any cruising guide or travel book. The writers whose work has been published in Caribbean Compass magazine know more about the Caribbean than just about anyone else I could think of. They have shown expertise that makes cruising the Caribbean a real pleasure. This book is a ‘must have’ for anyone who has, is or plans to visit the beautiful islands of the Caribbean.' This comment from Bob Bitchin, founder of Latitudes & Attitudes Magazine and creator of Cruising Outpost. www.cruisingoutpost.com/

'Given a new life beyond the magazine, the pieces in this collection resonate and sparkle in a very different way, offering new pleasures. Beyond its entertainment — the first piece had me hooked — the collection is sure to spark ideas in both cruising sailors and armchair dreamers.' This comment from Ann Vanderhoof, author of An Embarrassment of Mangoes and The Spice Necklace. www.spicenecklace.com/

'‘Cruising Life’ is a fabulous collection of classic Caribbean Compass articles. Sally Erdle and Rona Beame have done an amazing job of mining the Compass archives to come up with a book that is lively, fun and describes not only cruising life, but life on the waterfront. The Adventure chapter will put paid to the notion that Caribbean cruising has become ho-hum. Chapters on Humor, Travel, Poems, Book Reviews and Recipes provide vignettes that create a colorful and representative picture of the Caribbean. Buy this book to enjoy, or to send to your friends.' This comment from Chris Doyle, author of Sailors Guide to the Windward Islands and Cruising Guide to the Leeward Islands. www.doyleguides.com/
