||Crossing an Ocean Under Power
Crossing an Ocean Under Power follows a retired software entrepreneur and his computer game designer wife, as they cross the Atlantic on their 62’ trawler. Although sailors have been crossing oceans for hundreds of years, the era of couples cruising the world in small powerboats is just beginning. As the book begins, Mr. Williams frankly admits to serious doubts about his boating skills. Mr. Williams chronicles his journey across the Atlantic, as well as his personal journey from “coastal cruiser” to “ocean crosser”. Along the way, we learn with him. Sans Souci, his boat, made the trip as part of the historic first Atlantic Power Boat rally (18 small power boats, averaging only 50 feet long, owned and captained mostly by retired couples.) Best described as a “Dummy’s Guide to Crossing Oceans”, Mr. Williams’ honest, and entertaining, style will keep you turning pages as you take this important step in readying yourself for your own long-distance cruising.
