The three stories of Captain Adams' first book, Sea-Quences, are diversified in nature and offer something for everyone. The first heart-pounding adventure takes place on the Atlantic in a gale force on board the beautiful N. G. Hereshoff yacht, Vayu. The original commission was to deliver the yacht to the West Coast by way of the Panama Canal and Mother Nature changed the plan. The second adventure was the same type of commissioned delivery-East Coast departure and San Diego destination, also by way of the Panama Canal. This story is a wonderful cruising adventure with lots of descriptive geography and history along the way. Of course there is excitement thrown in by way of very close calls that can happen when out to sea! The final story is filled with fun and humor, and not without excitement, on a weekend charter sail to Santa Catalina Island.
Al Adams has many stories - one would acquire quite a few stories while sailing for so many miles and visiting so many places. Seeing the world in Al Adams' fashion is very fulfilling. It is lucky for us that Al's storytelling is so complete that by reading the stories, you can believe you must have been aboard. Al's second book, Sea-Quences and Beyond, will be available soon and will be chock full of breath-taking, breath-holding, exciting stories.
Don't miss it!
