Webb Chiles looking for old magazine article

I'm looking for a magazine article I wrote many years ago. I believe it appeared in CRUISING WORLD in 1984, most likely in the March, April or May issues. My title for it was "The Island That Would Not Be Passed," though sometimes magazines change such things. It was about my passage from Portugal to the Canary Islands in CHIDIOCK TICHBORNE II and the end of my open boat voyage.

If anyone has a copy of the article, I'd be most appreciative if you would email me at webb@inthepresentsea.com.

I'd gladly pay for a photocopy of the article or trade an autographed copy of my most recent book.

Thanks.

eBay might be your friend here. Many people sell racks of stowed magazines either piecemeal or in lots there. It's pretty simple to use the search function to specify particular issues. Same with Google. Ask a younger person if you aren't comfortable with computers.

May I say I have admired your work and lifestyle? I particularly recall a piece in which you related your thoughts after having your boat sink under you. Your fortitude and good humour were memorable to me.

Did you try the library? I do maritime research work as part of my job at the museum and the local library will find and photocopy magazine articles if I ask them to. My library doesnít even charge for the service. They also will find any book that I ask for no mater how far they need to search. Itís a great service from American libraries that is very much underused. You can also get in touch with the library at Mystic Seaport and they will photo copy the article for a nominal price. They are very easy to work with and will find it having just the information you posted.

I also have enjoyed your writing and followed your trips. Good luck with all your future ventures.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

Believe Webb is in NZ...and the libraries there probably wouldn't have a 20+ year old copy of a US-based magazine. I'm planning on checking the Boston Public Library for it today.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hello,

I have in fact just returned from New Zealand and am in Evanston, IL, where we are having a heat wave: it is above freezing.

Thanks for the interest and suggestions. I am checking with local libraries. No luck yet and waiting for a reply from the Chicago Library. I expect that I can get what I want directly from CRUISING WORLD, but wanted to try other ways before bothering them. I will give eBay a try. Hadn't thought of that, though I am so comfortable with computers that I usually travel with two.

I'm going to be here a while, back to New Zealand later in the year, and off again at least part way around the world again next year.

Webb

Did you contact Cruising World and ask them if they could get you a copy or at the very least a ohotocopy ?
