Blue Horizons: Dispatches from Distant Seas

By Beth Leonard, wife of CCA member Evans Starzinger. 
Evans & Leonard won the CCA's Far Horizons Award in 2007.

CoverBlue Horizons chronicles seven years of high latitude voyaging aboard Hawk in a series of essays, describing our discoveries about ourselves and the world, while we explored the cold & difficult & beautiful higher latitudes.

 “She puts us right there in the cockpit and on the wharf of a new destination, showing us a world in which ‘perfection’ is not bland, easy, escapist comfort in a crowded tropical harbor but a more insecure yet more rewarding existence of constant challenge – cold waters, rocky coves, demanding seamanship, and the evolution of two sailors trying to manage a boat and also their own relationship.”
– John Rousmaniere, author of The Annapolis Book of Seamanship

“I almost never read aloud but found myself over and over compelled to say ‘Listen to this.’ It is that wise, that perceptive, that wonderful.”
– Don Casey, author of This Old Boat
