About the Book
 
From Wendy Hinman, the author of laugh-out-loud award winning Tightwads on the Loose, comes another true story of adventure and the stubbornness of dreams. Salsa Press announces the release of Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire. Sea Trials is a timeless story of a family and their struggle in the pursuit of a dream, filled with daunting challenges, glimpses of the fascinating cultures they encounter and enough levity to keep readers of all ages hooked to a suspenseful, satisfying ending.
 
A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits.

A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family.

In 1973, the Wilcox family sets off to sail around the world aboard the 40-foot sailboat, Vela. Thirteen months later, they are shipwrecked on a coral reef, with surf tearing a huge hole into the side of their boat.
