About the Author

Joy Smith has been sailing her entire adult life. She is a native of Los Angeles, where getting hooked on sailing is easy. She had owned and raced four sailboats before buying Banshee in 1971. Banshee and Joy have crossed the Pacific three times with various crews. After the third Pacific crossing, Joy, a science teacher, became an assistant principal of a high school on Guam, and Leslie Brown joined her there in 1996.
Leslie Brown is from New York, where she worked as a N.Y.C. bike messenger. She became a sailing enthusiast after moving to Hawaii. She restored an old 24-foot plywood sailboat and sailed on her own around the Hawaiian Islands for ten years, working as a scuba diving instructor.
