Editorial Reviews



From the Back Cover

"If you've ever wanted to cruise the Bahamas by boat or just in your mind, SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS offers a humorous ride." 
--Wendy Hinman, author of TIGHTWADS ON THE LOOSE 

"SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS made me feel the tropical sun on the back of my neck, with the added bonus of a treasure-trove of local information!" 
--Glenn Damato author of BREAKING SEAS 

"SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS documents the journey of a non-boat owner through the purchase of his first sailboat, on to Florida and eventually through the Bahamas. It is a detailed, and starkly honest account of a cruising couple with a child and dog, and what they overcame to fulfill their dream. The author kept meticulous records that will benefit anyone considering the same adventure." 

"SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS was a pleasant surprise. The insights into why people like us 'go out there' in boats is brought into crystal clarity in a way that is both entertaining and informative. The humor with which he tells this tale makes the pages fly by." 
--Bob Bitchin, publisher of CRUISING OUTPOST MAGAZINE

Linus Wilson has written three books Slow Boat to the Bahamas (2015), How to Sail Around the World Part-Time (2016), and Slow Boat to Cuba (2016). He is the creator of the Slow Boat Sailing YouTube channel and Podcast.

Linus Wilson earned a doctorate in financial economics from Oxford University in England. He learned nothing there that prepared him for sailing from New Orleans to the Bahamas in a small sailboat. He is an associate professor of finance at the University of Louisiana. He has been published in Good Old Boat, Cruising Outpost, and Southwinds magazines. He is married with one child, Sophie above. Slow Boat to the Bahamas and How to Sail Around the World Part-Time have been number 1 bestsellers the Kindle sailing categories.

In 2010, he sailed for the first time, and he sailed to the Bahamas in 2015. He transited the Panama Canal in 2016 and is looking forward to sailing the South Pacific. He jogs because he likes to sometimes travel faster than 5 knots.
