Author Judith Silva will share stories of six very different sailors, all retired, who cruised three modest sailboats on modest budgets for 3,000 miles along Canadian and U.S. waterways, as detailed in her book, “The Voyage of Yankee Lady: Circumnavigating New England on a Sailboat.”

Come hear how these sailors found their way into nearly 90 harbors and anchorages while coping with storms, mechanical problems and other obstacles.

A question-and-answer period will follow Silva’s talk, and she also will sign copies of the book.
