Shelagh Hogan grew up sailing and quickly fell in love with being on the water. She followed that passion to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy where she earned a degree in Marine Transportation. She holds a USCG 1600 ton Captain license. After several years as a navigation officer and surface rescue swimmer aboard ships in the merchant marine, she bought a 43’ sailboat that she lives and travels aboard. When she’s not writing about her travels and sailing, she is—sometimes clumsily—learning the lessons and enjoying the challenges that life on board has to teach.
