five weeks to jamaica by doug oudin

indie ebook cover

When four friends discovered a 'luxury' five-week cruise to Jamaica
being offered for a mere five-hundred dollars, they considered the offer
too good to pass up. On first sight of the 'luxury yacht', their
expectations diminished to the point where they questioned the logic of
going through with the voyage.

Larry, always the optimist, persuaded Kurt, Madison, and Marcos to stick
it out. Their adventure would turn into much more than they could have
imagined, and ultimately changed their lives forever.

Joining a group of thirty eclectic souls aboard the 147 ft. 'luxury
yacht' Explorer, the friends departed Ensenada Mexico, bound for
Jamaica. From the beginning, it soon became obvious that the cruise
would not be luxurious, and in fact, it was doubtful that it could even
succeed. As they became acquainted with their shipmates, and began the
journey down the coast of Mexico and Central America, through the Panama
Canal, and on to Jamaica, friendships emerged, as did romances.

It soon became obvious to all that the five-week cruise time-frame could
not be realized, and several passengers departed at various ports along
the way. Those who remained aboard began to discover a multitude of
unique and interesting pastimes to immerse themselves in, and several of
those pastimes led them to situations and adventures that can only be
described as bizarre, if not downright unbelievable.

When their cruising odyssey finally reached Jamaica, another twist to the adventure arose, when they joined a salty Englishman aboard a 47’ sailboat bound for Florida.
What happened on that leg of the journey brought danger, fear, and personal drama that would ultimately affect them all.

A fast-paced, exciting, and entertaining read, ‘Five Weeks to Jamaica’ is a book that will keep the reader eagerly engrossed and thoroughly entertained.
