She gives unique insights into a plethora of women's concerns, including: Why We Go; Cruising Roles and Relationships; The Right Boat; What Do I Need to Learn? If My Partner Falls Overboard, How Do I Rescue Him? Learning for Independence; Fearing the Weather Ahead; Isn't It Dangerous Out There? Medical Preparation and Planning; Children On Board; Family Issues and Events; Staying in Touch; Career Planning and Employment; Bathing, Hair Care, Skin Care, Clothing; Sex at Sea; Provisioning for Cruising.To provide a broad perspective, Diana Jessie includes the opinions of noted women cruisers, including: Barbara Merritt, contributing editor of "Cruising World" magazine; Lin Pardey, longtime cruiser and author of several cruising books; Dawn Riley, noted America's Cup and Whitbread sailor; Patience Wales, two-time circumnavigator and editor of "SAIL" magazine; plus seventeen other women, from novices to world-renowned sailors.
