BOOK - Carina

Carina is the story of the Schrader family as they travel from Alaska to Florida to buy a 40-foot sailboat with the intent to sail around the world. I was 14 years old when we left Alaska and embarked on this trip of a lifetime.

We encountered relentless rain, violent storms, searing sun, boredom, sleepless nights spent putting up and taking down sails, sailing mishaps and triumphs and numerous creatures of the sea such as whales and sharks. We sailed from Florida, through the Bahamas, Caribbean, Panama Canal and up the west coast of Central America, Mexico and the United States to end our trip in the little town of Whittier, AK.

This is the story of my life while I spent three years as a crew member on Carina. 224 pages, softcover
