    With his first mate and crew, amateur sailor Larry Jacobson embarked on a lifelong goal to circumnavigate the globe. Willing to risk all, Jacobson spent six years sailing into the unknown where the unrelenting oceans served as a teacher of seamanship, personal strength, and perseverance. In The Boy Behind the Gate, the author reveals those crucial steps that will motivate you to make your dreams come true. We are each given one great opportunity at life. What are you going to do with yours?

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story and wanted the adventure to continue. I felt I was truly along for the ride, which was FUN and scary at times. The people and places were so colorfully described that again, I was along for the ride, and felt a part of their experiences.

    Larry takes us through his decision to make his dream come true with honesty. He proves that with perseverance and determination, anyone can overcome their fear of failure, danger, or the unknown and reach out for whatever it might be that we dream of doing or becoming.

    I was inspired by Larry's journey...from decision to execution!
