Finley Martin

Sailing in Circles, Goin’ Somewhere—Finley Martin

Not all dreams have happy endingsFinley Martin's Sailing in Circles, Goin’ Somewhere is the funny, bittersweet memoir of a Prince Edward Island man who, over seven years, builds a classic 1930s wooden sailboat and, in 2004, attempts to circumnavigate eastern North America. The author leaves a small fishing port on the Island and tracks along the rugged coast, up the St. Lawrence River, and through the Great Lakes. Alone, he encounters heavy fog, near-collisions with freighters, mechanical breakdowns, enormous seas, several brushes with disaster, and even a hostile reception at one French-speaking port. He meets odd and curious people. It all comes to an inglorious and mundane end when the author and his boat, the Arja D., are stuck in, of all places, Peoria, Illinois. Was it worth it? Maybe. 

Finley Martin will launch his new book Sailing in Circles, Goin' Somewhere on May 19 from 7–8:30 pm at Beaconsfield Historic House, 2 Kent Street, Charlottetown. Finley will be reading and signing copies of his book, which Bookmark Charlottetown will be selling on-site.
