Riding the Wild Ocean is a compilation of author Paul Krantz's wildest adventures over the years, from coastal New England to the Dry Tortugas, all in boats under twenty feet long. Beyond the sheer thrill of his experiences, this is a how-to manual for the serious sailor contemplating an open-ocean voyage in a small vessel. That includes equipping a boat for all-weather, day and night sailing, as well as gaining confidence and knowledge through gradual exposure to extreme conditions in controlled situations.
