At the Seattle Yacht Club Men’s Luncheon On Thursday February 22 at 11:30am in the Ward Room, award-winning author Wendy Hinman will share the exciting story of a harrowing circumnavigation from her newest book, Sea Trials. 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 daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits. Her presentations are filled with humor and hard-won lessons that amuse and inspire.
