"'Following Seas' is Beth Leonard's inspirational account of the three year circumnavigation she and her partner, Evans, made aboard their 37-foot ketch, Silk.
Wanting to escape from her high-powered yet hollow corporate life as an international management consultant, Beth exchanged the boardroom for a new life afloat where she and Evans were tested to the limit, but which enabled them both ultimately to emerge as stronger yet different people. Coping with frightening storms for days on end, facing unimagined dangers at sea, celebrating joyous landfalls and immersing themselves in exotic cultures where life is lived to different rhythms. Beth's gripping narrative and evocative prose is both thought provoking and compelling." - from the front flap.
