Coming About: The Bliss and Bane of Coastal Sailing

Coming About: The Bliss and Bane of Coastal Sailing

The Center for Wooden Boats Store

By Lawrence W. Norton, MD

Stories of a couple's adventures sailing in coastal waters, primarily in the Pacific Northwest, over the course of a quarter century. Among their more blissful experiences are sailing to Alaska to explore Glacier Bay, observing differing Native American arts and cultures, and enjoying such exotic sites in British Columbia as Princess Louisa Inlet and The Island that Trembles. On the baneful side, they encounter grounding rocks, engine failures, incessant rainfall, blinding fog, and being charged by a whale! The book describes amateur coastal sailing over long distances, a subject seldom emphasized in sailing literature.
