Seven Years Before the Mast
What began as an open-ended voyage on their 31-foot wooden cutter The Velella, turned into a seven-year, 34,000 mile saga, complete with typhoons, close calls with freighters, potential pirates, phantom night vessels, and even a swim in crocodile-infested waters. Hinman manages to wring humor from this conjugal saga, which touched on nineteen countries–and a lot of ocean.
Copies of her book will be on sale at the event.
