After suffering an emotionally-brutal bereavement and against her counselor's advice, Jackie ran away. Suddenly within a new culture, with a new husband and no friends, she was living in the obscure world of cruising with zero knowledge of boats.
Crashing within the first 24 hours, Jackie realized life would never be the same again: a floating home with no fridge or hot water, and with a dinghy instead of a car. Suffering self-doubts, she became fearful of her new world.
The first off-shore voyage took Jackie into a ferocious storm, which battered her physically and mentally. Amid the raging seas, Jackie shed the fear she'd been harboring.
Soon she was blissfully voyaging around the world, but she still carried the mixed emotions of losing one man, while falling head over heels in love with another.
Not only did Jackie deal successfully with the challenges of her new existence, she also battled with the testosterone-fueled nautical world to become both a professional captain and a qualified maritime teacher.
Most importantly, Jackie found herself.
