From short sailing trips with friends to longer cruises along coastlines or across the oceans, this book celebrates the nautical way of life. Since the dawn of time, exploring the world by boat has been seen as the pinnacle of freedom. And what may often have seemed an impossible dream is now within reach, thanks to businesses offering boats for hire and specialist companies organizing trips that give people the opportunity to live that dream for a few weeks. Sailing the Seas will take readers on a series on adventures across the globe, from the coast of the US down to the Caribbean, through classic Mediterranean voyages and of trips in far-flung locations such as Thailand and French Polynesia. Presenting a fresh, younger side of sailing, this volume reveals the sights, sounds, tastes, and experiences that can be had on board a boat.

Through images of landscapes dusted in a powdery palette and depictions of cold weather athletics, any questions of what to do with a snow day are answered in Below Zero. This volume explores the brisk side of nature's beauty and the adventures that await when the mercury drops.
