Cruising Tales with Wendy Hinman for our June 18th program.
Wendy’s new book, Tightwads on the Loose A Seven Year Pacific Odyssey, offers a fun read to the armchair adventurer — or anyone afflicted with wanderlust.
Our June program will be a lively and interesting talk featuring Wendy, a Seattle area freelance writer. She will regale us with stories of her cruising adventures and the cruising life that she has chronicled in her newly available book. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
Tightwads on the Loose tells the story of Wendy Hinman and her husband Garth Wilcox , lured to sea by the promise of adventure. They buy a 31-foot boat that fits their budget better than it fits Garth’s large frame and set sail for an open-ended voyage, never imagining they’d be gone seven years, or cover 34,000 miles at the pace of a fast walk. They live without most “necessities” and learn that teamwork and a sense of humor matter most as they face endless “character-building opportunities.”
