"Outbound is the story of two voyages: an Atlantic crossing in the 33-foot cutter Clarity, bound for Scotland; and the hard voyage of self-discovery that finally brought Bill Storandt to his life partner. Storandt’s account of the adventure he had carefully planned with longtime partner Brian Forsyth and their friend Bob soon turns into a white-knuckled sailing tale, as they encounter a fierce storm four hundred miles from the Irish coast that tests their courage and all their sailing skills. The sea story, vividly evoking life in a small boat on a big ocean, is interwoven with Storandt’s flashbacks to his earlier life. Outbound delivers its share of excitement, but it’s also a moving reflection on how circuitous our paths can be, even when the destination is clear and beckoning. ""Outbound is an edge-of-your seat read that's sure to keep both landlubbers and veteran sailors up past their bedtimes. William Storandt writes with precision, honesty, and restraint about the rigors of sailing across the Atlantic and about his own personal journey through the 1970s and 1980s. It's a wonderful book—gripping, moving, beautifully written. I couldn't put it down.""—Stephen McCauley, author of The Object of My Affection ""In funny, insightful and honest reflection, Storandt's course sometimes wavers through events and relationships. But ultimately, in both his literal and figurative passages, he finds the safe harbor of his dreams.""—Herb McCormick, editor of Cruising World"
