‘Starboard’ By Brittney Rittof

Newlyweds Ian and Brittney decide to go sailing one summer evening. Ian, a skilled sailor, is thrilled. Brittney is just happy to be along for the ride. During their voyage, Brittney accidently finds herself captain of the trimaran. With the help of her husband (and a few arguments in between), she navigates a new world of sailing, partnership, and self-reflection.
