Webb Chiles is a writer and sailor, or as he put it himself (in the third person):
Webb Chiles is a writer and a sailor, an artist of words and wind. Married six times, he lived with passion on land as well as water and at one time liked to believe himself an artist of women, too, but this may have been a delusion. As a writer: seven books and hundreds of articles published. As a sailor: five circumnavigations and several world records; and long ago he became the first American to sail alone around Cape Horn. He wanted to live an epic life. Perhaps he did. Spend some time and decide for yourself.
