Into the Light
by Dave & Jaja Martin
If you're a family thinking about going cruising, you're surely familiar with the Martins. But in case you're not, they once circumnavigated in a Cal 25, many of those miles as a family of four. So if you're waiting to go until you can afford a bigger boat, get some perspective. But this book is about the family's next boat, a 37-footer they sailed north to Iceland and Norway and then further north. They even wintered over in Iceland and put the kids in school there. If you think you need to stick to the beaten path, read this book. Also, it's just a good, compelling story. Dave opens it up on passage, in the middle of the North Atlantic, after he discovers a rusted hole in the hull with water coming in.
