Sailing with Paros

We recently received a copy of Yaeko Knaus’s book “Sailing with Paros: Our Beautiful World” for review. What a lovely little book! Yaeko and Mark were long-time members of our club, and it has been a pleasure to read about their adventures and enjoy Yaeko’s charming drawings. The images of the negative environmental impacts they are encountering in their travels are very impactful.l We’ve added this book to our club library for the children - but no doubt our adult members will enjoy it as well. Thank you for sharing this little gem with us.
