Description: In all, Sharon set five world records: first woman to single-hand the waters between the U.S. mainland and Hawaii, first woman to single-hand the Pacific, first woman to set two such records, longest distance sailed by a woman, and most days a woman had ever spent at sea alone. Sharon did all that in an era without gps, cell phones, e-mail, or Internet. She sailed in what was still a technological dark age for sailors. Sharon Sites Adams is no feminist. She did not sail the Pacific to prove anything about women. Sharon Sites Adams sailed the seas because she could.
