Suzanne van der Veeken, Ocean­preneur Pub­lish­ing

It’s not es­sen­tial to be su­per-cool and feel­ing the vibe to en­joy this book – but if you have as­pi­ra­tions in that di­rec­tion, down­load this at once. Suzanne van der Veeken has used her own ex­pe­ri­ence to write – and crowd­fund – a prac­ti­cal guide to hitch-sail­ing across the At­lantic. It’s a highly or­gan­ised and help­ful book with routes, ports, web­sites, and even some of the bars you should hang out at or go dock-walk­ing to find your ride. Clear think­ing and at­ten­tion to de­tail make van der Veeken’s work po­ten­tially use­ful to any cap­tain or crew mem­ber pre­par­ing for an ocean pas­sage. Her pas­sion for con­ser­va­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity of­fers in­sight to a ‘vagabond’ life­style that is also so­cially re­spon­si­ble.
