A Rare Sail Along the Alaskan Coast

Exploring Prince William Sound which was packed with glaciers, the uninhabited Icy Bay with its huge 18,250’ Mt Saint Elias, Yakutat Bay with Hubbard Glacier and 5-mile glacier face (only four sailboats had been there that year), the uninhabited Lituya Bay which has the world’s highest recorded wave, 1720’, higher than the Eiffel Tower and, of course, the popular Glacier Bay. Story covers Little Ice Age and past history. Full review in November issue of Pacific Yachting. Amazon gave book a 5 -star rating.


Patrick Hill has been sailing in various parts of the world for many years. He built his 42ft airex-cored fibreglass sail boat from scratch in 3 years.
