SET SAIL & LIVE YOUR DREAMS: Follow a Young Family Sailing Over the Horizon on the Adventure of a Lifetime BEST OF ISLA MUJERES: A Traveler's Guide To The Island's Best ANCESTOR: A Carriacou Sloop's Voyage to Vancouver
Bruce and April Winship were young and newly married when they decided to go looking for a little adventure. With little to no experience they hopped on a sailboat bound for Tahiti, and after two years of crewing on different sailboats throughout the South Pacific, Central and South America, they returned home with a burning passion to rediscover paradise on their own boat… this time as a family.

Travel books rarely provide the tourist such a clear, succinct and simple path to a destination as do Jackson (Kip) Lindsay's Local Knowledge Travel Guides. "Creating travelers out of tourists," as Kip says, may just exemplify the essence of what these remarkable guides offer the reader. His 45 years traveling southern Mexico's Yucatan coast, Cozumel and Isla Mujeres, offer a perspective and experience here few have. The books provide the reader with an in-depth opportunity to know places that will fit their style for food and drink, romantic beaches, quiet shopping spots, local music and art, or top notch silver your first day, without fumbling around with questionable suggestions.
Ancestor is the story of a Carriacou sloop, an engineless, locally-built sailing vessel purchased and refit by the author while living and sailing in the vicinity of the islands of St. Vincent and Grenada in the Caribbean Sea. The Carriacou sloop is one of a legendary class of sailing craft hand-built of wood by local Caribbean builders using traditional shipbuilding methods and following designs passed down over generations.
