Private Book Reading

  • Portola Valley, CA (map)

I am very excited to invite you for a [private] book reading writer Sally-Christine Rodgers, of her fascinating, beautiful and deeply personal travel 'journal' through French Polynesia.

Sally-Christine retraces the travels she took in their Wiley 66 from Santa Cruz through the South Pacific. The book is full of gorgeous photographs (like the one above), stories of local life, customs and history, and wonderful sailing stories. The book has been incredibly well received in the sailing world:

“Written beautifully, the author brings her entire self on this journey-mother, wife, lover,daughter, an 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

She will be selling her book, if you would like to purchase one for your own coffee table or as a gift :-) The proceeds of her book are donated to Marine Conservation projects, foundations and labs throughout the world.

I truly hope you can join us for guided sail through French Polynesia.
