SECOND WIND A Sunfish Sailor, an Island, and the Voyage That Brought a Family Together

by | Read by Nathaniel Philbrick

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Here's an audiobook to listen to on a road trip. Passionately narrated by the author, this brief memoir recounts Nathaniel Philbrick's youthful successes as a Sunfish sailor and racer. Philbrick narrates his story with verve and pays great attention to sailing lore and history. He comes from a sailing family and shares his passion with his wife and kids, who are costars in this fast-paced story of sea and skiff. As a youth, he trained on the ponds of his native Nantucket and, in one harrowing scene, he and his little Sunfish are almost washed out to sea. Happily, he makes it back and to his race (without the same success). But in this effervescent memoir, to sail is to win. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
