Local Land-Lubbers Spend a Year at Sea

They followed their dreams of quitting their jobs and spending a year at sea! Amy McCullough, author of the new book The Box Wine Sailors, joined us to share the true story of how she and her partner, Jimmie Buchanan prepared for their travels. She also talked about the highs and lows of sailing a small boat along the West Coast: from nearly being rammed by a pair of whales on Thanksgiving morning to having their tiller snap off while accidentally surfing coastal breakers and finding ultimate joy in a $5 pizza.
