Santa Cruz, California to the Marquesas
- 3,000 nautical miles in 15 days
Convergence is a personal story of one woman's adventure - her lifelong passion for the ocean, and her struggle to face her fears as she learns to surrender to nature. Along the way, she comes to realize that passages are not just about getting from one place to another. Journeys like this one go to the heart of who you are when you start out and who you have become when you get to the other end.
"this book is about a voyage to and around the south seas with three children aboard the wylie 65 cat ketch convergence. the author's splendid presentation and down-to-earth style (with frequent homage to her seafaring father) ranks this as one of the best cruising books we've ever seen... if we had to be stuck on a desert island with only one book to read, this would be an excellent choice..." - Latitude 38
"Written beautifully, the author brings her entire self on this journey - mother, wife, lover, daughter, and inquisitive woman, a sailor... Thoughtful, curious, mature... she describes places that many travel writers would not have the opportunity to visit."
- kathy parsons - Author, founder of women in cruising
"IT IS AN ADVENTURE STORY, A ROMANCE, CONTAINS HAIR RAISING TERROR, HUMOR, AND UNBELIEVABLY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHS."
- JOHN AUSTIN - HOST OF THE BOOK CLUB
"Convergence - A voyage Through French polynesia, reminds us that we only have one brief, exciting shot at this life. That our ability to experience adventure, love, acceptance and freedom is directly connected to our relationship with nature; to our wild spirit. this book does not belong on a shelf in the same way that our greatest dreams do not belong on a back burner."
- RACHEL KIPPEN - HAWAIIAN NATIVE & OCEAN ADVOCATE FOR SAVE OUR SHORES
