About the Book

Every boat has a story to tell and many have led very interesting lives. Flying Star’s life started with tragedy when members of her crew were lost in a hurricane, but she survived to experience a full and exciting life. Claude Morgan, a retired U.S.A.F. pilot and navigator, tells the story of his boat with love and humor, and along the way he introduces readers to some very interesting and exciting places to visit. Not just for sailors, this book is more than just a great story. It is also a wonderful travel guide that is delightful reading for boaters and travelers. The resource list at the end of the book is particularly helpful to travelers by boat or land. A great read and an invaluable resource!

About the Author

This is the second book Claude Morgan has written about his boats and his love of sailing is very apparent. This retired U.S. Air Force pilot took up sailing in 1976 and Flying Star was his first "real" sailboat. His first book, All Goes Well, explored the inland waterways in the heartland of America aboard Tout Va Bien, a thirty-three foot motor sailer. Flying Star covers more adventures from Hawaii to the California Delta. After the excitement of flying P-38’s, B-47’s, and B-52’s, Mr. Morgan has found sailing and exploring via boat just as exciting and fulfilling. Share the experience with him!
