I couldn't put this book down! What an adventure! Anyone that loves the ocean, fishing, sailing or adventure will enjoy it. High points (for the reader) are a sailfish bill puncture to the author's son's foot, the loss of the auto pilot and it's reconstruction, both on the long crossing from the Galapagos to the Marquesas. Oh, the fire in the bilge pump was interesting, as was the birth of a humpback whale at a mooring site in the South Pacific... I occasionally needed a sailing dictionary, but otherwise enjoyed every word. A personal view of the dangers, challenges and joys of crusing.

My byline says it all. Unlike many of the other budget sailing offerings available, this one is not full of silly passive writing (eg: the anchor was set??), absurd opinions (eg: its better to go in a bucket???) or sermonizing (eg: if you aren't doing it my way, you're doing it wrong). While The Next Port is mostly a book about a voyage, it does touch on some technical aspects of sailing. Any opinions presented are done so in a humble fashion that acknowledges that there a many ways to do this kind of trip. In addition, it uses sailing jargon (thank you!), but in a way that should be accessible to non-sailors. In short, this is a straight ahead, and honest, summation of a fantastic adventure. I've read it twice.

Format: Paperback
This book should be required reading for those who dream of sailing around the world, but whose partner does not share the dream. I may be biased because we sailed in company with Heywood and Charlotte for part of their journey, but his book reads amazingly well.

The Next Port gives excellent descriptions of the cruising lifestyle and the exotic places to visit in a small sailboat. More importantly, Heywood opens up about the adventures and problems they encountered while learning how to sail and maintain the boat. Most important is the subtle but recurring thread of his relationship with his beloved Charlotte, and how much energy he devoted to keeping her a willing partner in the adventure of his dreams.

This is a great book. I think the main challenge for the authors was fitting all the great experiences they had into the book. It's pretty hard not to want to sell up everything and disappear into the yonder while reading this book. Strongly advise not reading this book on the way to work as it may seriously hamper concentration.

This book is a must for all of us who love to sail. Going around the world with the author gave me sense of what it would be like if my dreams to do this ever came true. The trials and joys experienced during a trip of this magnitude will be felt by all readers. The knowledge necessary for this voyage was truly daunting. No "Sailing for Dummies" here! I hated to see "our" journey end.

I have read a number of circumnavigation books and this was one of the best. Made particularly interesting by some deviations to the traditional milk-run route: a detour up the French canals to spend winter in Paris, and sailing south to visit Brazil and take a 700 mile trip up the Amazon.

I just finished this book and loved the story. However, there were so many distracting typos and formatting errors that I had to put it down in frustration many times. This seems to be a common problem for kindle's ebooks. It is really obvious that no editing or proofreading was done before publishing the eversion of this book. My rating would have been higher if not for this issue.

I really enjoyed reading this book. As an experienced coastal sailor I found the mixture of overseas adventure, cultural and maritime challenges (real and imagined)to be both entertaining and educational.Unlike many of their American compatriots this couple made every effort to immerse themselves in the culture of the places that they visited and their efforts appear to have been rewarded by the many close friendships that they made along the way.
