Bound for Distant Seas begins sailing author James Baldwin's epic tale of his second circumnavigation. His story is seasoned by his adventures during his first circumnavigation in 1984-86 as told in Across Islands and Oceans. Alone with little money aboard Atom, his now-engineless 28-foot sailboat, James embarks on his odyssey without the comforts and equipment most sailors consider essential.
He wants to buy a sailboat and head off into the sunset for a life of adventure on white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue water, but she's not so sure about this wild plan. If she's not on board with the cruising dream, the boat won't leave the dock. Your wife is more important to The Dream than any piece of cruising gear. Save yourself hundreds of thousands of dollars and years of life by investing both in to make sure she's on board.
The story of a young couple who, without any prior sailing experience, decide one night over too many drinks that they are going to sail around the world. One year later they are bobbing around in the Bahamas on a 35 foot catamaran teaching themselves how to cross oceans in a small boat. Along their way they meet amazing people, visit locations only accessible by those on their own yachts, become television actors in Australia, minor celebrities in Puerto Rico, and generally have a great time of it all.

Les Woodland tells the inside story of one of cycling's classics.
