Setting sail for the Mediterranean in 1992 was a completely unknown venture for me and my husband Jimmy. True, we had been sailing for many years, but never for more than a few weeks at a time. Live-aboard cruising is a different matter altogether. We knew no one else doing the same thing, and were totally dependent on books to guide us. But though there were books on selling-up-and-sailing the oceans, and books about sailing in the Mediterranean, there was very little on making preparations for cruising there. So having spent three years reading everything we could find, we then spent the next six years discovering from bitter experience all the things our reading had missed out.
I felt that a book specifically designed to help people who were setting sail for the Mediterranean for the first time was badly needed. More and more people seemed to be heading that way (all in the same state of ignorance as we had been), and I found my notes in such demand that I could hardly keep up with the photocopying. The only answer seemed to be to write the book myself - so here it is. It's not intended to be an everything you need to know' type of book. The aim is to supplement other books, not to replace them, and I have concentrated on three types of information:
1 Things that are specific to the Mediterranean.
2 Things that we had to learn the hard way.
3 Things that we see other yachts having constant problems with.
