A timely, uplifting story about following one's dream.
The journey required never-ending positive thinking, humor, willpower and stubborn determination.

Friends questioned:

Have you lost your mind?
Why on earth would you buy a sailboat in Turkey of all places when you live near the San Francisco Bay?
Especially a boat you know nothing about?
How did you ever talk your wife into this outlandish mission?
Do you even know how to sail?

With no prior sailing experience, and less than four weeks training on their sight unseen sailboat, a father and son castoff from Turkey and head west into the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic.

Their implausible story is packed with short episodes that draw the reader into the action:

Stress as rookie sailors.
Never-ending humor that surrounded their boat, especially by way of mishaps.
Encounters with interesting and strange people not to mention pirates.
Countless ports and countries they sailed into and past.
The coming together of a father and son with full support of the oldest son, wife and mother..
All this while the father discovers life after retirement.
