Wendy Hinman had been sailing since age 6, so when she met a man who had been shipwrecked in the South Pacific in his youth, it may have been destiny…

Seven years and 34,000 miles aboard a 31-foot boat later, Wendy shares two award-winning tales that will delight true sailors and armchair adventurers alike.

“A modern, swashbuckling adventure, Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire will quickly transport readers through a fascinating, light read out to sea aboard the Vela.” — Seattle Book Review

“engaging… capturing the thrills and frustrations … taking in remarkably far-flung destinations such as Christmas Island and the New Hebrides, this exhilarating book should appeal to any would-be explorer who has stood at the prow of a ship and dreamed of the possibilities…sense the scent of sea air in the pages.”—Kirkus Starred Review.

Wendy Hinman is the author of Tightwads on the Loose: A Seven-Year Pacific Odyssey, the story of her seven year voyage aboard a 31-foot boat with her husband, Garth, and of  Sea TrialsAround the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire, the gripping story of Garth’s voyage around the globe with his family when he was a teenager.

Sea Trials was selected as a Kirkus Book of the month.  Tightwads on the Loose won the Journey Award for Best True Life Adventure Story, and was selected in the top 125 best travel books for women.

“Wendy Hinman offered genuine enthusiams, practical, noteworthy advice and some hilarious tales… her memoir [Tightwads on the Loose] will captivate you.” – Cruising World
