Essex Corinthian Yacht Club Hosts Jim Lynch, Author of ‘Before The Wind,’ May 4

Author Jim Lynch

ESSEX — To help kick off the Essex boating season, the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club (ECYC) will host award winning author Jim Lynch to read and discuss his book, “Before the Wind” on Thursday, May 4, at 7 p.m. at the club.  

The club is located at 19 Novelty Lane in Essex.   The book talk is open to the public.

Sail Magazine says, “In ‘Before the Wind’, author Jim Lynch tells the engaging tale of the Johannssens, a sailing family that’s like a distillation of all the eccentric, funny and cranky sailors you’ve ever met.”

The reviewer continues, “All too many writers have failed to convey both the technicalities and the spiritual joys of sailing in a manner that will engage the uninitiated without alienating the experienced, but lifelong sailor Lynch carries it off with this enjoyable read.”

For questions, contact Jean Little, ECYC manager, at 860-767-3239 or ecyc@essexcorinthian.org
