There are many adventures and epic challenges that people of all ages can aspire to complete. In The Wind Has Weight, Patricia Gogay shares her memories and reflections of fifteen years at sea aboard Imago, the trustworthy steel cruising yacht that she and her husband built. From the inception of the ship, throughout the duration of their global travels, and through the ups and downs of her husband's medical crises, Mrs. Gogay illustrates the triumphs and tragedies of the exciting yet difficult life on the seas.
As husband and wife, as skipper and "admiral", the Gogays endured much in their goals to travel around the world. They scraped and saved to put their effort and resources into building their ship. They learned and were advised as they met colourful friends and foes at multiple ports in countries around the globe. Facts and observations about wildlife, government, politics, poverty, wealth, and nautical pleasures and woes are presented with each stop of their journey. With her husband's medical challenges, we learn that their adventures are not simply dreams or goals, they are labours of love, at sea, on land, and in the heart. The knowledge that, inexperienced though they were, the Gogays set sail on this adventure reinforces the notion that people of all ages can aspire to realise a dream.
