In 2007, Michele and Wayne Sharp traveled from 
Bayfield, Wisconsin, on Lake Superior to Punta Gorda,
Florida, on their Island Packet 445 sailboat. They
chose the long route, which took them through the
St. Lawrence Seaway and the Canadian Maritime

Wayne had long dreamt of such a trip, but Michele, 
who didn't even feel qualified to call herself a
"sailor," was content to cruise Bayfield's Apostle
Islands National Lakeshore. Even her longest voyage
of 100 nautical miles caused her great anxiety,
so making the 5000 mile trip was out of the
question...initially. Michele recounts how she got
from "NO" to "GO" in a few short weeks, and speaks
honestly and from her heart as she works through
her fears and inexperience to become a "real sailor." 
The serious mariner will learn from the book, as 
Wayne, a licensed Coast Guard captain, contributes
from a more nautical and technical perspective.
Contains over 170 color and B&W photos.
