Summary: Sailing aboard a restored Spanish War Galleon up the West African coast is the trip of a lifetime! Reeling from sudden job loss, her father's death and the fact that her husband is headed for the Middle East, talented copywriter Jenna Pelsenn learns of a phenomenal opportunity to sail on a two month voyage aboard El Gran Grin. Generous of spirit, Jenna wishes to share the trip and immediately goes about the business of recruiting her four best gal pals to join her. Although Marilyn, capable lead
er and successful businesswoman, is Jenna's primary cheerleader, she is nevertheless hesitant; Gretchen, a neurotic accountant and mother of two is senselessly worried about her marriage; Carla, a recent widow and world traveler is already booked for the year; and Vivienne, who plays the role of "party girl" like it's a job is way too self-absorbed. Combined with an unlikely ship's Captain, a stuttering simpleton, an irresponsible crew, Arab royalty and an annoying old college flame who surfaces as a controlling factor, the entire adventure becomes entangled in unexpected chaos. Through a variety of dangerous escapades, from brushes with death to newly acquired skills, the five women discover a deeper connection with one another, what they're truly made of and a renewed appreciation for lives they grudgingly left behind.
