Kitiara Pascoe was a young woman struggling with severe anxiety when she decided to set sail and leave everything behind. She’d never been on a sailboat before. Her book In Bed with the Atlantic tells the personal tale of her 18,000-mile journey during which she crossed the Atlantic Ocean, traveled through the Caribbean and the Bahamas, and beyond. Along the way, she runs out of food and water, experiences storms and loneliness, explores island caves, and eventually learns to forage from the sea.
