Ocean of Insight: A Sailor’s Voy­age from De­spair to Hope

By Heather Lyn Mann (2016; Par­al­lax Press; $19)

Cruising World - - Underway - — Mark Pillsbury

Wis­con­sin en­vi­ron­men­tal ad­vo­cate Heather Lyn Mann took a sab­bat­i­cal from her work on global warm­ing and set off on a six-year voy­age to the Ba­hamas and the Caribbean be­yond with her hus­band, Dave, aboard their Hy­las 45.5, Wild Hair. In Ocean of Insight, she traces their ad­ven­tures with en­ter­tain­ing and some­times thrilling tales of sea­man­ship, cou­pled with re­flec­tions and lessons learned from the sea in her ac­com­pa­ny­ing spir­i­tual jour­ney charted ac­cord­ing to Bud­dhist teach­ings. Part sea story and part guide to self­dis­cov­ery, it’s a well-crafted tale and well worth the read.
