Thank you very much! Maybe I can get my skateboarding 14 year old son to actually read something other than a quick passage from Tony Hawk! Any suggestions?

What a welcome find. As not a Lats and Atts reader (must have been all those cheesecake covers), this is my first intro to Tania. I look forward to more ! Wonderful piece.

Maiden Voyage is still in print and can be gotten at any book store. I got my copy last winter at Barns and Noble, because I had a coupon. It would have been worth twice the price. I took it on a cruise (on a Carnival Cruise, not a sailboat cruse;-( ) to celibate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. It came in handy as I had a lot of spare time.

Maiden Voyage was in part responsible for getting my then girlfriend, now wife interested in sailing...

Thanks for the links. I just finished reading 'By the Grace of the Sea' by Pat Henry. A circumnavigation done much later in life than Tania. Had me sitting on the edge ~ exhilarating and frightening at the same time. Tania's book is next.

I have her first book; it's pretty interesting. Nice to see she's still sailing and writing.

The Bear's two cents worth;
Tania has been one of my note worthy people since I followed her circumnavigation. I guess she is why I still have faith in the youth of the world. She is now showing sons that there is a whole world out there besides "Wally World and the Mall". God, if we only had more like her.
