Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire by author Wendy Hinman. Wendy is an adventurer, speaker and the award-winning author of two books, Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. Sea Trials, her second book, tells the exciting story of the harrowing journey of the Wilcox family. A shipwreck might spell the end of a dream to sail around the world. Not for them. It’s a true story of the determination and survival of parents and their teenage children as they face of shipwreck, wild weather, pirates, thieves, gun boats, mines, scurvy, and starvation. She’ll also share stories from her own 7-year 34,000-mile adventure aboard a 31-foot boat with the teenaged hero of Sea Trials, now all grown up. Despite being shipwrecked as a boy, he was eager for another ocean voyage. Her first book, Tightwads on the Loose, which details their adventures, has been a hit for years.
