Maiden Voyage encourages the female spirit

From Armadillo Island’s Books For The Beach And Boat Collection, Tania Aeibi’s Maiden Voyage is the true story of what happens when an unambitious teen-aged girl is challenged by her father to choose between college or a 26-foot sailboat –the catch being that if she chose the sailboat, she’d have to sail around the world …alone.

It encourages the female spirit with a great lesson in independence and “can do” attitude.

Women that sail single-handed are right up there with girls that drive Jeeps and girls that drive VW buses.

I love the strong-willed, outspoken nature among women of Armadillo Island.
