This book is a retro reminder of the halcyon days of cruising and the golden age of sex. The ocean air arouses all the senses and once at sea all inhibitions are left ashore. There are moments of great sex where unmarketable women forfeited the familial unwritten "chores" of servicing the Captain/Officers to the fungible floozies aboard. Their sexual performances surpassed Hollywood's casting couch.
This compelling read also includes some history and geography. It takes place in the 1980's when sailing away parties were de rigueur and long before surveillance cameras dominated the decks.
