About the Author

W. R. Cheney has worked as the Sheriff in the Gaslight Club in Paris and sold Volkswagens in Afghanistan. For more than forty years he was a professional photographer and photojournalist in Europe and the U.S. During much of that period he managed to own boats and spend an inordinate amount of time using them, most notably in the Bahamas, along the Eastern Seaboard and on the Baie d'Arcachon. He, his wife, Kendra, and their English Setter Sparky currently divide their time between Swan's Island, Maine--where he sails the engineless Marshall 22 Penelope--and Lady's Island, South Carolina, where he cruises and races the Marshall Sanderling Shorebird.
