The Jay Heritage Center will host a talk and Q & A with Charlie Doane, Cruising Editor of SAIL Magazine, the largest sailing magazine in the US as he shares chapters and personal experiences from his newest book, The Sea is Not Full – Ocean Sailing Revelations & Misadventures on Friday, September 22, at 6:30 pm.
Charlie has completed seven transatlantic voyages, including most recently a voyage from France to New England aboard his new boat Lunacy. His other voyages include singlehanded passages between New England and the Caribbean; he has also competed in several distance races, including the Newport-Bermuda Race, the Fastnet Race and the Sydney-Hobart Race. He is one of many accomplished sailors and descendants of New York Yacht Club co-founder, John Clarkson Jay.
Doane has published articles in The New York Times, Yachting World and Cruising World. His first book, The Modern Cruising Sailboat, was published by International Marine/McGraw-Hill in 2010.
The talk is free but registration is requested for proper provisioning.
