South Islander - Memoirs of a Cruising Dog - Book CoverThis is a cruising guide with a difference. Many boaters may not be aware of the opportunities for walks accessible from anchorages along the B.C. coast. For those who cruise with dogs aboard, and for those who like to venture ashore to stretch their legs, the book is illustrated with charming maps describing walks up and down the coast. Framed by the author’s many years of cruising on a beautiful wooden sailboat along with her husband and two dogs, it tells tales of mishaps, adventures, explorations and glorious days on the water. The book is set against the stunning backdrop of the waters, mountains and islands between the B.C. mainland and Vancouver Island. If you are an experienced sailor with extensive knowledge of the B.C. Coast, are new to boating, or even a confirmed landlubber and armchair sailor, you will love this book. It is a “must have” in every boat’s cruising library.
