The Boy Behind the Gate by Larry Jacobson This book is the result of Larry’s six year round the world sailing trip. Larry left a secure job and his home to follow his passion of sailing. With his boat “Julia” named after his mother, he covered more than 38,000 miles and 40 countries. It is a tale of perseverance, following one’s dreams and discovering one’s inner self.
This is an excellent read for armchair travelers or sailors looking to take a trip of this magnitude. The book is fast paced, inspirational and full of stories that invariably come with a once in a lifetime trip such as this one.
