Finding Pax: Expanded edition (Paperback)


Special Order—Subject to Availability

Finding Pax is a story of discovery and reconnection like no other. Having fallen hopelessly in love with a 1930s Danish spidsgatter, a beautifully constructed 28 ft wooden double-ender, Kaci Cronkhite embarked on an international search to unravel the mystery of the boat's past, and discovered the many lives Pax touched since she first hit the water in 1936.

Kaci Cronkhite's seven year search for Pax's history is an elegant little gem, taking the reader aboard not only for sublime, wind-filled sails but also to eavesdrop the conversations and relationships that are built as she learns more about Pax's past, whilst hugely enjoying her present. The writing is poetic, spare, and full of wisdom.

"The boat appeared when I didn't expect or, frankly, need her. My bucket list was empty. Life was full…But sailing towards me was a boat that would stir the waters, waking decades of loss, revealing history untold, and restoring a legacy that was lost in the wind. For her and for me, I had to wade into that water. I had to go, to search, to find."

Kaci Cronkhite is a writer whose work radiates a passion for adventures combining wind, travel, history, and legacy. Her stories have appeared in the anthology Steady as She Goes, and in magazines and newspapers in America, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and the Caribbean. She has written dozens of blogs and sailing articles: She has sailed around the world from 1995 – 2001, and then ranthe Wooden Boat Show in Port Townsend, Washington for a decade. The upcoming When a Cowgirl Goes to Sea tells the story of Cronkhite's ocean sailing adventures before Finding Pax.
