Sailors’ Scuttlebutt Lecture Series: “Second Wind” with Nat Philbrick

Nat Philbrick’s memoir, Second Wind: a Sunfish Sailor, an Island, and a Voyage That Brought a Family Together, is a personal tale of how, as a 36-year-old stay-at-home dad on Nantucket, he launched a comeback as a Sunfish racer, training for the championship he had won 15 years earlier. Originally published in 1999 by a small New England press, this brand new edition features a new preface. While many of Philbrick’s books explore America’s relationship with the sea, Second Wind explores his own relationship to the water.
