About Rick Page
Rick Page first bought the idea of the Sea Gypsy life to a wider audience through the TV documentary 'New Lives in the Wild' (Season 4 episode 4)* where he attacked the myth that you have to be rich, gifted or crazy to travel the world by sail.
The book, "Get Real, Get Gone" was released several months later in order to elaborate on the ideas and philosophies that were touched upon in the TV documentary and to answer the thousands of questions from budding (often completely inexperienced) sea gypsies who were inspired to follow their example and head out to tropical paradise on their own boat and limited budget.
Since then, hundreds of people have used this book to put their plan into action and change their lives for the better, many of whom have become friends with the author.
Rick now lives aboard his current boat Calypso II (an Island Packet 38) somewhere in the South Pacific

The idea that you have to be rich to travel the world on your own yacht is so universal that it goes largely unquestioned. The ubiquitous images of rich men on super-yachts sipping Martinis only help cement this image. This book hopes to change all that.
Rick’s recent appearance on Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild chronicled his budget lifestyle and adventures aboard Calypso, and introduced the idea of budget sailing to a whole new audience – an audience who may have never considered the possibility that such a dream could be made a reality, on such a small amount of money. This book is for them and for any experienced sailors who want to cast off the yoke of consumerist yachting and get back to what really matters at sea.
If you are not rich, but dream of seeing our beautiful world from the deck of your own boat, this book is packed full of practical and spiritual advice to help you cut through the endless marketing and identify what it is you truly need to become a modern sea gypsy and sail away on the greatest adventure of your life…

‘Denke nicht einmal daran ein Boot zu kaufen, bis du dieses Buch gelesen hast’ Tom Cunliffe (legendärer Segler und Autor von The Complete Yachtmaster).
Der Gedanke, dass man reich sein muss, um auf seiner eigenen Yacht die Welt zu bereisen, ist so weitverbreitet, dass er größtenteils nicht hinterfragt wird. Die allgegenwärtigen Bilder von Martini-schlürfenden reichen Männern auf Superyachten festigen diese Vorstellung nur noch mehr. Dieses Buch hofft, all das zu ändern. Rick und Jasnas kürzliches Erscheinen in Ben Fogles ‚New Lives in the Wild’* zeigte ihren kostengünstigen Lebensstil und ihre Abenteuer an Bord der Calypso und stellte die Idee des Segelns auf geringem Budget einem ganz neuen Publikum vor – einem Publikum, welches es vielleicht niemals in Erwägung gezogen hätte, dass ein solcher Traum in der Realität mit nur so wenig finanziellen Mitteln umgesetzt werden könnte. Dieses Buch ist für sie und für alle erfahrenen Segler, die sich vom Joch des konsumorientierten Segelns befreien wollen und sich darauf zurückbesinnen möchten, was auf See wirklich wichtig ist...
