Aweigh of Life

A Memoir and Travel Tales of Seven Years in the South Pacific

Aweigh of Life is a memoir and travel tale of one woman’s unique adventures of sailing and living in the South Pacific during the 1970s. Interlaced with her adventurous tales, she explores the emotional scars from her dysfunctional upbringing as she morphed from seeking the adventure to seeking simplicity and then being called into motherhood.

With an honest insight, she examines the choices she made during the seven years during which she experienced the beauty and generosity of the less-developed island peoples of Oceania, riding out gales and hurricanes, going bush in New Zealand, building a thatched hut and doing subsistence farming. She eventually returned to sailing, ending up delivering her first child on a remote island of grass-skirted, betel nut–chewing natives in Papua New Guinea.
