Book Signing with Paul S. Krantz, Jr.

Paul S. Krantz, Jr. will visit the Museum Store on Saturday, December 6, from 1-4 p.m. to sign copies of Riding the Wild Ocean: The Circumnavigation of Cape Cod in a 18-Foot Sloop, and Other Adventures. The book is a compilation of the author’s wildest adventures over the years, which takes the reader from coastal New England to the Dry Tortugas — all in small boats under 20 feet in length.

Beyond the sheer thrill of adventure, Riding the Wild Ocean is a how-to manual for the serious sailor contemplating trying his or her hand at such open ocean adventuring in small boats, including how to select and equip a boat for all-weather, day and night sailing; and how to prepare one’s self as well through gradual exposure to extreme conditions in controlled situations.
