 Too Old Not to Go 4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, sound insights and advice Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2013 Disclosure: I met the author on his Bahamas cruise which is the subject of this book, and am mentioned in it. In this review, I endeavor to put my personal connection with Fred aside, in order to provide other interested readers with useful information regarding the value of this book. His writing engages the reader, with a light and humorous style. That said, he tells the tale of his Bahamas cruising solo sailboat cruise as a factual log of events. Also included are side-notes of information and insight--takeaways--that I can confirm are useful. I think that if I were contemplating my first trip to the Bahamas on a sailboat, or any single-hand sailing trip on such a boat, this book would be useful and inspiring. The four star rating compares this work with books by other authors in similar situations: self-published, first work, etc. In such a "genre" this work clearly stands out for me as a reader. 4 people found this helpful."

 5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and inspiring Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2021 Verified Purchase First hand account of the trials, adventures and fun experienced by the author. Fred is a courageous and determined sailor who let nothing prevent him from completing his single handed voyage around the Bahamas. We can all learn from his "can do" attitude."
