Circadian Rhythm is the name of a boat that was the vehicle for many summers of rollicking good times for a group of blue-collar yachtsmen. This book describes these adventures and provides the listener with a glimpse of the champagne life style on a beer budget. The intrepid crew of Circadian Rhythm could barely make the month's payment on the boat, but still managed to bang heads with the "blue-bloods" of the New England sailing world and come out ahead. This book is for the armchair sailor and active sailor who enjoy a good yarn with a few chuckles mixed in.
A recollecting of fun times as a late teen and young adult in the sailboat community on the Atlantic coast. From school and family, through college and job with an engineering firm, the interest in sailing hovered and resulted in purchase, renovation, and a coming together of friends to crew. From there, life devolves into a weekend mania for regattas, races, and other such fun. Interspersed among the sailing are humorous anecdotes common to young men of an age.
Narrator Jack gives a fine performance. Just like sitting dockside and listening to another sail nut rattling on about his experiences.
This book was an entertaining gift

This is the story of a yacht, named the Circadian Rhythm. It chronicles many New England summers, spent partying on a boat, co-owned by a group of blue-collar workers, who could barely make payments sometimes, but still managed a to have a good time. The narrator has a great voice for this type of story, and I think this is my favorite of the books i've listened to that he narrated.
