About the Author
Rick Page holds an honours degree in Disaster Engineering and Management and is a regular contributor to Cruising Helmsman magazine. He became a RYA qualified skipper in 2008 and has lived aboard every day since 2007 when he bought his first boat Marutji – a steel Van de Stadt 34 (pictured on the cover). Jasna Tuta is a primary school teacher and a qualified Dinghy Sailing Instructor. She has been living the sea gypsy life since 2010 and has published over 200 magazine pages and 64 radio shows. Marutji was also her first boat. She regularly holds sailing courses and talks in Italy and Slovenia, splices rope to chain like it was string, and makes the world’s best lasagna. No question. They are both living aboard their current boat Calypso somewhere in the Pacific.

I'm a 25yo competitive dinghy sailor in Australia and give it a 5 star rating not only because I couldn't put this book down but also because a lot of what is explained in the book is Tabu in the sailor's world and would never be addressed in major sailing magazines or websites. It all makes so much sense and I think the attitude and mindset in which Rick and Jasna set sail is the one to have.
'Smiles on deck, not miles under the keel' what a great mantra to have.
Greatly appreciated read.
This book was just the push I needed to make a purchase and can say that the authors even offered to help by providing their expertise in helping me on my quest to find a boat. They are real people that want to help folks like me, landlocked and working 5 days a week.
That itself is worth its weight in gold! I highly recommend the book!
Hope to meet them out there someday!
