Wendy Hinman will be presenting at the Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum in Essex, MA, Wednesday, June 28, 6-8pm
A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, and starvation in a trial that tests them to their limits. Come hear Wendy Hinman share this amazing story and that of her own voyage years later with one of the survivors.
