In the book SAILAWAY Vol 2 Robert and Penny Powers had achieved their goal of sailing from Lake Superior, U.S.A to the Caribbean Sea.  At that point in time and the beginning of this adventure, they were at St Croix Island in the West Indies, over 1,000 miles from the east coast of the U.S.A.  The time is January and they continue to sail and play for another 10 weeks in the Sailor's Paradise know as the Virgin Islands.  Here they are faced with the dilema of how to return their Coronado 35' sloop-rigged center-cockpit yacht named Drifter back to the United States before the hurricane season begins in the West Indies.  After several alternatives are ruled out, they are left with only one option, that being to sail the yacht on a Passage of 700 miles offshore with no additional crew. 
  This Passage requires 7 consecutive days and nights to reach San Salvador Island in the Bahamas.  The actual voyage through ideal sailing conditions as well as strong storms  is depicted in 'real world/real life' detail including the use of 'storm survival tactics'.  From San Salvador they  island-hop their way to the U.S.
Mainland ahead of the hurricane season beginning in June.  A great deal of preparation is done prior to departure for "the PASSAGE" offshore from St Thomas U.S.
Virgin Islands to San Salvador Island, Bahamas.
This is a wonderful story of fun and adventure at Sea as life truly exists aboard a sailing yacht.
