I even bought the hard copy for the boat. A big inspiration for me when I was stuck out in the desert. Any of Chichester's books are worth reading. These are the ones I own and periodically re-read :. So many books, so little time! Andrew, great book. Ah yes, haze grey and underway. Been there, done that. You could do worse that O'Brian's Master and Commander series. Not exactly what you asked for, but I'm telling you anyways. Got to spend several days working with him back in and he told lots of great stories.
The published version of the book has some 40, more words on a bunch of additional topics that are not covered in the free version, is professionally edited, etc. Certainly worth a couple of sawbucks. One to have on the shelf in reserve for those times when you think you don't have enough boat and you think yo don't have enough sailing experience.
Shrimpy was a plywood 18 ft estuary cruiser. He had little sailing experience when he left and had no idea how to raise the mast which he had on deck because of the bridges on the way to the sea. He left from Cambridge. Fastnet force 10 and Fatal Storm are both great reads but for a more happy tale check out "Trekka round the world" by John Guzzwell.
Come to think of it, that story has a couple weather tales in it as well! I read all the books before cruising. My opinion: A waste of valuable time that could have been better spent getting ready to go sooner. Cruising is wayy easier than the books imply.

That's about it.
Goofing around during shore time is like anywhere else. Don't need the books.
