Lois Joy Hofmann: Sailing the South Pacific
Lois Joy Hofmann
Lois Joy Hofmann recounts the South Pacific segment of her eight-year, 62-country sailing circumnavigation with her husband Günter on board the 43-foot catamaran Pacific Bliss

Picture yourself in the South Pacific islands—the Marquesas, Tahiti, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Easter Island, the Societies, Tonga, New Zealand, or Vanuatu. Hofmann's presentation integrates stories about sailing and traveling with the geography, culture, and history of the places and people she encounters along the way.

LOIS JOY HOFMANN retired after a 35-year career in advertising and marketing to complete her circumnavigation with her husband, Günter. The couple now embarks on more conventional travel with the goal of understanding countries and cultures that they omitted the first time around. She is the author of Maiden Voyage and Sailing the South Pacific, the first two books in her trilogy called "In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss." Maiden Voyage won first place in the travel category of the 2011 San Diego Book Awards. Hofmann's stories have appeared in magazines such as Latitudes and Attitudes, Cruising World and Living Aboard.
