is the story of two voyages: an Atlantic crossing in the 33-foot cutter"Clarity"

, bound for Scotland; and the hard voyage of self-discovery that finally brought Bill Storandt to his life partner.

Storandt s account of the adventure he had carefully planned with longtime partner Brian Forsyth and their friend Bob soon turns into a white-knuckled sailing tale, as they encounter a fierce storm four hundred miles from the Irish coast that tests their courage and all their sailing skills. The sea story, vividly evoking life in a small boat on a big ocean, is interwoven with Storandt s flashbacks to his earlier life. Outbound delivers its share of excitement, but it s also a moving reflection on how circuitous our paths can be, even when the destination is clear and beckoning."
