Inhaltsangabe: Kawabunga's South Seas Adventure, Blue Water Cruising In a 20 Foot Boat, is a romantic, true-life saga about an intrepid couple who follow their dream of sailing over the horizon to the South Seas. Join the Dewells in their tiny sloop Kawabunga, as they embark upon an extraordinary voyage.
Share in the excitement of Charlie's first offshore passage. He sails alone for 42 days from San Diego to the enchanted island of Nuku Hiva.
Margaret and Charlie rendezvous in Tahiti and cruise through the Societies before sailing up the Line Islands to Christmas Island. They spend three weeks on mysterious Palmyra Atoll, an uninhabited collection of islands and motus where they reclaim their childhood -- spending their days beachcombing and exploring Palmyra's three azure lagoons.
The couple drive little Kawabunga hard during the challenging 1,000 mile passage to the Hawaiian Islands -- testing their seamanship, their relationship and their courage. There is plenty of high-seas adventure on the passage home. Charlie single-hands the boat up and over the North Pacific High to Marina del Rey, fighting the battle of his life with a North Pacific storm.
Along the way the Dewells make new friends, overcome hardships and discover they are up to the challenges of storms at sea, equipment failures and riots in paradise. Kawabunga's South Seas Adventure will inspire you to follow your dream.
286 pages, 16 page color insert, glossary, extensive index, charts, line drawings, equipment list.
