Local author Wendy Hinman will discuss her seven-year, 34,000-mile sailing adventure aboard a 31-foot sailboat and sign copies of her new book, “Tightwads on the Loose,” at Eagle Harbor Book Company later this month.

Hinman will talk about her book at noon Sunday, Oct. 28.

“Tightwads on the Loose: A Seven Year Pacific Odyssey” takes readers on a high seas adventure. It tells the story of Wendy and Garth, lured to sea by the promise of adventure. They buy a 31-foot boat that fits their budget better than it fits Garth’s large frame and set sail for an open-ended voyage, never imagining they’d be gone seven years, or cover 34,000 miles at the pace of a fast walk. They live without most “necessities” and learn that teamwork and a sense of humor matter most as they face endless “character-building opportunities.”

San Francisco Book Review said: “A light-hearted tone and unaffected style make this an entertaining tale.”
