"...you won't find a finer resource for voyaging information anywhere, at any price."

John Harries and AAC speak the capital "T" Truth about ocean sailing that you won't find in any magazine, with a proper focus on fundamentals first. AAC espouses seamanship at its best—you won't find a finer resource for voyaging information anywhere, at any price."

"John and Phyllis take a particularly scientific approach to problem solving."

For any sailor looking to prepare his boat for cruising, the breadth and depth of knowledge contained within the Attainable Adventure Cruising site is unmatched by any other resource I know. Moreover, John and Phyllis take a particularly scientific approach to problem solving. Rather than relying on the anecdotes of their own experiences, sound as they may be, they incorporate into their articles contemporary research and other expert opinion so as to give the sailor a complete and thorough guide to cruising."

Randall Reeves  two time Southern Ocean circumnavigator, figure8voyage.com

"Literally every decision that we have made during this build has been compared to and deliberated over, in relation to the wisdom drawn from AAC."
