Changing Tides, a new memoir of sailing the Caribbean in search of love and adventure, is released exclusively for the Kindle.

April 8, 2010, New York – Vellum Publishing, Inc. announces the publication of a new memoir about sailing the Caribbean. With a life-changing decision, Jeffry Gardner decided to escape his corporate tedium and mid-life doldrums. He bought the perfect cutter, one designed by Robert Perry and built in Taiwan, christened it Changing Tides and left his successful public relations business on Long Island to explore the exquisite Caribbean. Eight years later in Panama, an unimaginable twist of events led to his being savagely beaten and left for dead.

“It is the ultimate male fantasy,” said Vellum Publishing, Inc. President Chet Meyer. “Buy a sleek, sexy boat and sail away from the drudgery of everyday life to a world of adventure on the high seas. And Jeff Gardner has the guts to do it! In his fifty-one-foot cutter, he leaves his executive job and troubled marriage for the cruising life in the Caribbean, partying with locals as well as social nobility like Jimmy Buffett and Caroline Kennedy. Then, after years of living his dream and having adventures most of us can only fantasize about, in an instant his carefree life is transformed into a nightmare as a vicious attack leaves him fighting for his life. Changing Tides is his story and it’s all true.”
