Don Rothschild's clear voice captures a tone and spirit that will touch the sailor in all of us.  A treasure of up close and personal stories from his lifelong pursuit of sailing and the sea.


"What a delightful book. . . . You’ve nailed the spirit of the cruising sailor through your adventures on a scale we all can relate to."
—Skip Zahniser, Zahniser’s Yachting Center

"Don’t look for heroic sagas on the scale of Tales of the Titanic or The Perfect Storm. These yarns are up close and personal adventures laced with sly humor and served up with a twist of irony."
—Shirley Levy, Boating columnist

"The balance for the technician and the landlubber is exquisite and makes it a great read for both. Like the ‘Arabian Nights’, this is a series of stories that take us on journeys to many places."
—Renny Severance, Editor
Sanibel Islander

"This book should be in every cruiser’s foc’sl or guest quarters for a rainy afternoon read aboard. I also wanted to hear more at the end of many chapters. . . ."
—S. A. Metcher, President, The American Nature Study Society

"From the Cockpit of the Rubaiyat . . . begins on the fresh waters of Lake Erie, flows into tranquil inlets off the Chesapeake to the unsurpassed romantic Caribbean seas and tradewinds and finally into the majestic and beautiful Atlantic. Each sailing escapade, and each boat, bares its own lesson and sea story. In today¹s culture of high technology and virtual experiences, sea stories are a real treasure for the non-sailor and sailor alike."
—Dana Hokin, Managing Partner, The Bitter End Yacht Club, BVI
