Loki and Loon

A terrific book for sailors or those fascinated with the idea of sailing, or of cruising, and long voyages as well. Published in 1985 just before the overwhelming internet gobbled up everything, praising whom it deemed the best while reducing others to obscurity, Pinchot’s account of sailing is well written and accessible by sailor and landlubber as well. He and his sailor wife Sally, chronicle their love affair with sailboats and sailing from early days in the thirties until after their epic travels to the Pacific and back. Especially enchanting is their early sail from Maine to Norway in their 30 foot Loki, a wooden classic. Gifford includes descriptions of those met on voyages and the way in which a crew can manage their life at sea with the inevitable arrival at new ports of entry. The consummate advice in chapter 14 for all sailors is simply one of the most perfectly stated descriptions of how to become a sailor and how to remain a sailor through the difficulties of small spaces, hardships, and the love of being at sea with family or friends, sharing one of life’s greatest adventures!
