Lehnert to share sailing stories of the Caribbean


 Local author Sharon Lehnert will share her books, Idiot Afloat, Book 1 and Book 2, detailing her time sailing in the Caribbean, at two local libraries in August.

Lehnert will stop by the Bothwell library Aug. 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the Chatham library Aug. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The books cover several years of Lehnert’s experiences in Caribbean, featuring the Bahamas, Florida Keys and Cuba. She learned how to live as a single-handed sailor, at times with a rookie crew.

According to a library media release, Lehnert’s tales are “often funny and are a cautionary tale for those setting out for southern waters.”
