Shelter From the Storm
A Sailor's Life of Havens, High Seas, and Discovery
About the Book
Buying Saffron, a 24-foot racing sailboat, was an act of desperation meant to help single parent June Cameron and her youngest son validate themselves. It did that and more. A friend persuaded June to race the boat, and over the next decade June, either solo or with her all-female crew, competed in BC’s major sailing races, taking home a lot of the hardware for their class.
Shelter from the Storm is a fascinating memoir about finding one’s place, even if that place is at sea.
