Serena to Sea Story

Taking to the sea

It’s been the age-old divide: sail or power? But in “Serena to Sea Story II” ($24.95, Nautical Publishing Company, 2009) readers don’t have to choose. Mary Jane Hayes and her husband, Warren, describe their adventures on the sea in both sail and power vessels.
