Adventures of s/v WILD HAIR


Our land life took on form, solidity, routine. We had mastery of a limited set of skills. We had habitual expectations of others and ourselves. Going sailing, we let go of our attachments to our roles, views, and rituals. We persist because we are growing in this shapeless and dynamic world.

Books: Two Thumbs Up

Having spent months traveling aboard WILD HAIR with no television or radio, Dave and I are well read. We would like to recommend the following books for your summer reading enjoyment (listed in alphabetical order):
  • All the Pretty Horses by Cormick McCarthy
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan
  • Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
  • Constant Gardener by John leCarre
  • Lost at Sea by Patrick Dillon
  • Right of Thirst by Frank Huyler
  • The Road by Cormick McCarthy
  • Saturday by Ian McEwan
  • This Much I Know by Wally Lamb

Further, we would like to recommend the definitive sailing reference that puts an end to all of our boat arguments (the squabbles Dave calls “mutinies”):

  • Blue Water Voyaging by Beth Leonard
