Dee Carstarphen has spent most of her life living and working on the water. She’s a founding member of the Seven Seas Cruising Association and has cruised from California to the Caribbean, explored the Bahama Islands, voyaged out to Bermuda, cooked aboard schooners in Maine, and gunkholed the length of the U. S. East Coast. These illustrated books reflect her experiences aboard a variety of sailing vessels. She lives with her sailmaker husband on the shores of Chesapeake Bay, and cruises locally aboard their 22-ft cat yawl.
