In 1955 Jan De Hartog was an author of books about sailors and the sea. After reading one of his books, a young boy decided to go to sea and wrote De Hartog to ask for his advice on going to sea. This book is the result.
The book is written for the young sailor out fresh out of a Maritime school and thinking of a career at sea. Organized like a cruise, it covers such topics as packing for your first sea voyage and retirement. Often told with little tongue in cheek humor, it offers tips and stories and observations of a lifetime at sea.
