Out of office - freedom under sail is a sailing adventure, published by Delius Klasing. Young, dynamic and successful as a junior tax consultant: from the outside, Dirk Mennewisch is a careerist of the very highest order. But then he discovers the joy of single-handed sailing and decides to take a year off from his job, buy a sailboat, upgrade it and embark on an adventure: once in the Caribbean and back! How this year turns a hip, impatient go-getter with only 600 nautical miles of sailing experience into a laid-back, accomplished single-handed sailor. It's all great fun to read, holds surprising insights and invites you to dream of following suit. Alternating emotions: There are the fears of the many "first times" - just docking, casting off, navigating, sailing long distances - but also the sense of achievement, the joy of solitude and the long journey in contrast to the no less great need to share and celebrate with like-minded people. Dirk Mennewisch's sailing adventures read wonderfully, self-deprecatingly and entertainingly, at the same time unpretentious and yet exciting. No matter whether on long winter evenings or in small chunks during lunch breaks and after work: this book is always an enrichment for every sailor! 272 pages, 32 color photos, 1 map. Format: 1 x 21 cm, hardcover with dust jacket.
