Everyone has their own boat to sail. Their destination and route is their own choosing, but we all sail on unpredictable waters that are not under our command. Sam Phillis’s A Sail and Tale of an Emotional Rescue is a book of a man’s adventurous voyage over seas and through life. A Sail and Tale of an Emotional Rescue chronicles the thrilling and dramatic experiences of author Sam Phillis and his 30-foot Catalina Yacht and sailing sloop named the Emotional Rescue. Phillis initially preferred the safe enclosure of freshwater, but some dramatic events in his life, and the distant crashing waves of the Atlantic seawater, compelled him to set sail down the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and near shore on the Atlantic Ocean. Through many tribulations on ocean and in life, Phillis emerges to tell his amazing tales of daily survival. A Sail and Tale of an Emotional Rescue is a factual and humorous narrative of a seasoned recreational sailor with thirty years and thirteen thousand miles of sailing and boating experience. This book makes an excellent gift and enjoyable reading for avid recreational sailors and those wanting to leave their dormant shores of life for adventure. Some Book Reviews of Interest: • Every now and then at Savannah Connect we come across a book so unique, so individualistic, so off-the hook that it makes us smile. Sam Phillis’s book is such a book! ………. A glorious hodge-podge of an account of his voyages off the Eastern Seaboard..…Phillis’s book is hectic, a deeply personal memoir of one man’s struggle, depicted by his efforts to tame the sea almost single-handed, although a cancer patient, and a self-professed bipolar sufferer, along with going through a divorce……. Sam writes with a funny, engaging writing style and a great eye for photocomposition. ……A Sail and Tale of an Emotional Rescue takes you on what is sometimes literally a whirlwind tour of the Intracoastal Waterways and points offshore…the book is much like the author himself: warm, engaging and somewhat chaotic (there is not just one “ending” but multiple closures and endings…. …..It’s a book that despite its many minor flaws, will no doubt remind you of your own personal voyages, large and small….. Most of all, in a publishing word full of self-important, “literary” tomes of questionable human value, Phillis’s memoir is quite a breath of fresh air in your own sail. Jim M.

But the more I read, the more delighted and curious I was. I found it hard to put down once I got started and felt I was along with him in the cockpit.”- Dennis N. - Reader and CEO • “It seems like Sam writes with an interested “stream of consciousness” and tells it like it really is. He will surely hold your attention and make you ask yourself, What’s next”? Seems like he expanded the story in print, by adding the color pictures, but failed to express the meanings behind each shot related to a specific story. For as I know, a picture is worth another 1000 words. Where are the other stories? Maybe he will explain in his ne
