Cruising - On Sabbatical

I was asked by Jeanne Kenaston to put up a copy of this link. The links to the two volumes are: Volume 1 Volume 2

YouTube for a short slide show

You can look at the whole book without buying it, but I think it was a great effort on the part of the Jim and Jeanne and well worth the cost.

Our former Westsail, "Sabbatical," now owned by Gary Baugh (renamed Betelgeuse) has finally made it into print. I completed this year the story of our voyage around the world.

Didn't start out to ever do that, but in digitizing hundreds of photographs, it just sort of "happened."

The books (two volume set) are available at (Search: On Sabbatical). It can be viewed in its entirety for free. Purchase is also through Blurb, although for the same price I can sign and mail copies ($120.00 for the set). I'm getting ready to order some more sets, as I am currently sold out, but will have some in a few weeks. Sorry about the price - the penalty for "on demand" printing. Sale is at my cost, so I'm not retiring on the proceeds.

The books comprises 300 pages and 500 photos of our three-year adventure. If you would like to share the link and my email information ( I would appreciate it.

I would like other Westsail owners to experience this adventure in a fine vessel - which we hold dear to this day. We're glad she's still afloat and loved. Sabbatical was hull number 657. We sailed from 1979-82 - 30,000 miles.

Best regards,
Jim and Jeanne Kenaston

    These books are worthy of any coffee table and Jeanne did an outstanding job in laying them out and her sense of humor is wonderful.
