Home on the Waves (Promontory, 2015) recounts Patrick and Heather Hill’s adventures aboard Sky One Hundred, their self-built, 42-foot sailboat. With their two children, they spent 14 months sailing more than 15,000 miles in total, departing from Vancouver, first "harbour-hopping" along the Pacific coasts of the United States and Mexico, then onto the tropical islands of the South Pacific. After staying in the Hawaiian Islands, they navigated Sky One Hundred to the glaciers of Alaska before returning home to Vancouver. The Vancouver-based couple have owned nine sailboats, including Sky One Hundred, built in their back yard.
