Wendy Hinman to share sea stories at the Eldridge Public Library in Chatham MA June 19



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.

Books will be available for purchase at the event so you can take home a signed copy.

Eldridge Public Library in Chatham MA June 19, 7pm

Wendy Hinman presents sea stories @ Thirdplace Books in Seward Park June 7

Join us for an evening with author Wendy Hinman and her new book, Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Sailing Wire on Thursday, June 7th at 7pm.

A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family …

In 1973, the Wilcox family sets off to sail around the world aboard the 40-foot sailboat, Vela. Thirteen months later, they are shipwrecked on a coral reef, with surf tearing a huge hole into the side of their boat.

With years invested in saving money, preparing the boat, and learning to navigate by the stars, parents Chuck and Dawn refuse to give up. Fourteen-year-old Garth is determined to continue, while eleven-year-old Linda never wanted to go in the first place. Can they overcome the emotional, physical and financial challenges to transform from castaways into circumnavigators?

Wendy Hinman is an adventurer, speaker and the award-winning author of two books, Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. She is currently the editor of the Writers Connection, a newsletter on the craft of writing.

Come in and listen to sea stories, browse, and pick up a signed copy of these riveting sea tales from this award-winning author.
