A Caribbean sailing vacation takes a frightening turn with a mysterious death.... A year has passed since Janeva Jag witnessed a murder. The endless police inquiries seem finally at an end. It’s time for a relaxing sun-drenched vacation in the tropics. Is it fate, bad luck, or something more sinister that brings the Jag family face-to-face with yet another death? Determined to enjoy their planned Caribbean sailing holiday they try, without success, to ignore a sequence of strange events and threats. Maybe there is a reason to be a bit paranoid, but at least life will return to normal when they get home - or so they believe. Instead, they find themselves entrapped in a mystery and the more they try to understand their predicament, the more helpless and vulnerable they become. 1. Language: English.

Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a selection of Tom Cunliffe’s funniest, wisest and most thought-provoking writing from the pages of Yachting Monthly. Tom’s love of language and sense of humour shine through as he recalls the wealth of sinners and saints he has met on docksides from Southampton to South America, Greenwich to Greenland and Newtown to New York. He has a gift for capturing the magic of sail and finding pearls of practical wisdom in the most unlikely nautical adventures. Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a lively miscellany of a wit, wisdom and wonder. It will make you laugh and make you think – and make you want to cast off to enjoy the delights of life afloat. 1.

Winner, 2016 Secretary´s Research Award, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution - awarded for author´s contributions to research.The first oceangoing yacht ever built in America, Cleopatra’s Barge, endured many incarnations over her eight-year life, from Mediterranean pleasure cruiser to a Hawaiian king’s personal yacht. The famed ship, at times also a Christian missionary transport, pirate ship, getaway vehicle, instrument of diplomacy, and racing yacht, wrecked on a reef in Hanalei Bay on April 6, 1824.Obtaining the first underwater archaeological permits ever issued by the state of Hawaii, a team of divers from the Smithsonian Institution located, surveyed, and excavated the wrecked ship from 1995 to 2000. The 1,250 lots of artifacts from the shipwreck represent the only known material culture from the reign of King Kamehameha II (Liholiho), shedding light on the little-documented transitional period from Old Hawaii to foreign influence and culture. Although Liholiho ruled Hawaii for only a few short years, his abolition of taboos and admission of the Boston Christian missionaries into his kingdom planted the seeds for profound changes in Hawaiian culture. Shipwrecked in Paradise tells the story of the ship’s life in Hawaii, from her 1820 sale to Liholiho to her discovery and excavation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doug McDonald.

A master storyteller. ´´Something is out there that doesn’t have a name,” writes veteran sailor and writer Christian Williams as he invites us along once again on a 5,000-mile voyage of discovery around the North Pacific. Equipped with a new boat, a well-stocked toolbox, and the entire history of philosophic thought, he takes us as crew through squalls and calms deep into a laboratory of the universe that exists only out of sight of land. Funny, erudite, and at times deeply personal, Philosophy of Sailing explores who we are and how encounters with the unknown can be a path to revelation and joy. With 20,000 miles at sea, Williams is also a master teacher of how to sail a boat across perilous oceans and the renovation of yacht and outlook required before departing on the voyage of a lifetime. With a preparation guide, toolbox of books, and glossary of nautical terms. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christian Williams.

Seamen: From mariners on huge yachts to competitive sailors in races like the America´s cup to recreational boaters, the combination of men and water is irresistible. Whether they´re wearing Speedos or slickers and handling megayachts or windsurfers, these guys can set sail right to our heart. Neil Plakcy, the editor of Hard Hats, Surfer Boys, Skater Boys, The Handsome Prince and Model Men sailed the high seas and gazed through many a porthole looking for stories of navy men, yachtsmen, and even a pirate or two and the fun they get up to, on land and on sea. These naughty and nautical guys will turn you on with their large masts, from fresh-faced tan youths to the rich yachtie with silver flecks in his hair. Imagine watching those muscles work as they grind winches to set and control sails, steer from the helm, or tack a sailboard. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Drake Stone.
