small boat cruising stories

    A while back I came across what was (for me) a treasure of small boat
sailing stories.  These were stories of open boat cruising, camp cruising and
in general adventures closer in type to what I hope to do some day.   Most by
now have already been read.  Can anyone suggest book titles, web sites or other
references to actual stories or sources for stories of the type I seek?  (The
original collection started with the web site of the Dinghy Cruising
Association)  Thanks in advance.  Best regards, Warren

We took a 23' powerboat across the Bahamas from Ft. Lauderdale. I wrote
about it on my website:

We met a fantastic couple in the Thousand Islands this summer, Frank and Margaret
Dye.  They've taken their 16' Wayfarer from England to Norway, across the pond
(take that you "Big Boat" advocates!!) & up the East coast of North America, up the
St. Lawrence & through the great lakes.  Frank has written several books, I think
one was called "Wayfarer Across the Atlantic", & I think his latest is called
"Sailing to the Edge of Fear".

BTW, I recently came across a book that was recommended to me as "the bible" for
small boat cruising, called "Dinghy Cruising" by Margaret Dye (I think the same
one).
