When Beth Leonard and her partner, Evans Starzinger, returned from a three-year, 35,000 mile circumnavigation, they thought they were done with offshore voyaging. But neither realized how irrevocably they had been changed by their experience, nor how irresistible the siren song of the sea would prove. In comparison, life ashore seemed dull and monochrome, and within months, Beth knew she had to go back to sea in order to remain true to the person she had become.
Four years later they set out on their 47-foot aluminum sloop "Hawk" for a journey that lasted six years and took them more than 50,000 miles. They voyaged to Newfoundland, Iceland, Norway, the Caribbean, Ireland, Scotland, Cape Horn, New Zealand, the South Pacific, British Columbia--to the ends of the earth and back.

Beth A. Leonard has sailed more than 85,000 blue water miles over the past thirteen years, ranging from tropical oceans to Tasmania, Cape Horn, and the arctic seas north of Iceland. She and her partner, Evans Starzinger, have been honored for their voyages by the Ocean Cruising Club (UK) and the Cruising Club of America (U.S.). Leonard contributes regularly to "SAIL," "Cruising World," "Sailing," and "Yachting World" magazines, and her "Voyager's Handbook" is widely accepted as the definitive treatise on blue water cruising. Her "Blue Horizons" column was one of "Blue Water Sailing"'s most popular features throughout its six years.
