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 end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for them. 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. Wendy Hinman’s books and presentations are filled with humor and hard-won lessons that amuse and inspire. Don’t miss the chance to hear her present while she is in town.
