Introduction

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.
