“Our Island in the Sun” is an exciting and insightful read on the author’s cruising experience written from each of their own perspectives about sailing a part of a 25,000-mile journey aboard their sailboat Yellow Rose. “Our Island in the Sun” is the creation of published authors Garry and Carol Domnisse, spouses who set sail from Long Beach, CA to Annapolis, MD. Garry acquired his Coast Guard 100-ton masters License and a General Class Amateur Radio License to aid his proficiency in managing a small vessel at sea. Carol, a retired registered nurse, obtained her Amateur Technician License to be able to use the radios aboard and assist in all aspects of communication. Today, she enjoys hobbies such as quilting and spending time with the family and grandchildren.

Bob Perry-world renowned yacht Designer shares in his endorsement of the book “I never intended to ‘really” read this book. My goal before reviewing it was to ‘peruse’ it and stop now and then when a particular passage caught my attention. Just read enough to do an honest review. But I sat down early in the morning and began actually reading the book. Just to get started. Page one lead to page two and to page three and page 4 etc. and very soon I was into the book. I stopped to eat breakfast but could not wait to get back to the story. “Garry says the book is not a ‘cruising handbook’. Maybe not but it’s certainly a ‘cruisers primer’ in my opinion. I cannot think of much he leaves out in terms of the life of a cruiser. Maybe Pirates. But that is it. I like the way Carol writes her own accounts of the adventure. It’s good to see two perspectives of the same situation and experience. The psychological aspect of long-distance cruising can be as interesting as the pragmatic side of keeping a boat going. Carol and Garry both give you great insights into this very personal side of the adventure.

If I were to criticize the book I’d say from a designer’s perspective, I would have liked to see more descriptions of the other boats Garry and Carol encountered on their voyage. That’s just me. When I finished the book I remembered saying, Long range cruising is all about fixing your boat in exotic places.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Garry and Carol Domnisse’s new book is a must-read manuscript that is a great for those who plan to cruise and those who are yet to start dreaming of future voyages aboard.
