The Vega Adventures
A Nautical Adventure by Shane Granger
Early in 1892, one of Norway’s finest boat builders launched a sailing legend.Over 100 years later Shane Granger and Meggi Macoun were peacefully enjoying a siesta when the great tsunami of 2004 changed their lives forever. With thousands of people desperately in need, they loaded their boat with donated food and medical supplies then set sail for Sumatra.
That voyage was the beginning of a rip-roaring real life sea tale complete with storms, adventures, exotic tropical islands, and heart-rending drama.
Feel the wind, smell the riggers tar, and taste the salt in this tale of a century old wooden sailing boat and her crew of intrepid adventurers as they take up their yearly 7,500-mile journey to deliver over 25 tons of educational and medical supplies to some of our world’s most remote island communities.
