June 21, 2023
This is the amazing story of Sharon Sites Adams. Shortly after learning how to sail in her mid-thirties, Sharon became the first woman to sail across the Pacific alone. First, she sailed single-handed from California to Hawaii in a 25′ folkboat, SEA SHARP in 1965. Four years later, she singlehanded from Japan to California in a Mariner 31, SEA SHARP II, and made landfall 45 minutes after Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon in 1969.
Look for Sharon’s memoir, Pacific Lady, in your local bookstore or online.
