9781408112014: Occupation Circumnavigator: Sailing Around the World

A hippy Sell Up and Sail, this entertaining and inspiring book is more than just a cruising narrative – it is an instructive account showing how anyone can circumnavigate (or even sail for an extended period) without huge funds. Lars Hassler originally set off intending to sail for three years, but by judiciously using his funds, and topping them up by taking charter guests on cruises, he sailed around the world for ten years.  Woven into the book is advice on costs, distances, timing, power needs, food and medication – in other words, the practicalities that everyone who sails needs to know about. And at the end, there is a forward-looking chapter providing advice on ‘After the Circumnavigation – What Next?’ With a Foreword by Jimmy Cornell and a gorgeous photo section, this is an enjoyable and useful read for anyone thinking, or dreaming, about making an extended cruise.

About the Author :

Lars Hassler is a sailor, diver, skier, mountaineer, marathon runner, aerobics instructor and has a Masters in Law. After his ten year cruise around the world, he returned to Sweden where he lectures and writes books in the winter, and sails in the Mediterranean with paying crew in the summer.

Review :

"Lars, the modern day Odysseus...is in many respects an extraordinary person, a man who had the guts to chuck it all in and opt for a lifestyle that others dream of their entire lives... Any reader planning to follow the author's example will find many useful tips on how to earn a living while cruising. Thank you!"— From the Foreword by Jimmy Cornell "Most sailing books divide into two categories...a technical nature and intended as educational...or..some intrepid sailor's recollections...This interesting book successfully manages to combine both functions....His technical and administrative advice is quite sound...A good read at a modest price."—Nautical Magazine "An entertaining and instructive book for anyone planning a long distance cruise." —Boat Mart

"Great photographs and plenty of sailing hints and tips."—Practical Boat Owner

"With its gorgeous photograph sections and fascination accounts of the places visited, this is a hugely enjoyable read for anyone thinking (or dreaming!) of an extended cruise."—Royal Naval Sailing Association
"Useful information on energy saving plus communications, choosing crew and how to start a new career as a charter skipper, as well as how to hitchhike round the world as crew."—Yachting Monthly  "An instructive account of how anyone can circumnavigate (or even sail for an extended period) without huge funds. Hassler originally set off, intending to sail for three years, but by judiciously using his funds, and topping them up by taking charter guests on cruises, he sailed for ten years. Woven into the book is advice on, costs, distances, timing, power needs, food and medication--in other words, the practicalities that everyone needs to know about. And at the end, there is a helpful chapter providing advice on ‘After the Circumnavigation--What Next?"—The Nautical Mind
