Sneak a peek

By Amy Chavez

75 pages, 6 photos, 40 links

A diary left by her great grandfather documenting his travels through the Inland Sea in Japan over 100 years ago inspires Amy Chavez to trace his journey, but this time in a 40ft. sailboat. This is a true account of her adventures of 6 weeks at sea, including the trans-Pacific crossing to Australia, where disaster struck and she and her crew floundered in the Pacific Ocean for two days before finally being rescued.

This is a rare chance to read a first-hand account of what life was like in Japan in 1900, together with a story of a true life adventure at sea.
