This inspirational story is told through Bettys eyes as she learns her soon-to-be husband almost dies and upon a near miraculous recovery sets out to sail around the world in his 65 ketch. He holds her to her promise to make the journey with him, even though she is less than enthusiastic about it. With seven people on board, and Betty being the only woman, "On the Winds of Destiny" is her story of their amazing 3-year journey around the world. Bettys will is tested as she and their crew survive 20-foot seas or freighters that nearly capsize Destiny, squalls and hurricane force winds, the long days at sea, and Bettys never ending battle with sea-sickness. "On the Winds of Destiny" is a work of passion, determination, human spirit and mans desire to conquer his fears and Mother Nature.
