Judith Silva has written two books about her sailing adventures with her husband, Jim. The first book, The Voyage of Yankee Lady Circumnavigating New England on a Sailboat, detailed their adventures in maritime Canada and Newfoundland aboard her boat, Yankee Lady. Judy learned to sail at summer camp when she was twelve and then sailed her own boat, a Penguin dinghy, on Long Island Sound while she was in high school. She and Jim both started cruising as adults, sailing from Connecticut as far as Nantucket and Maine. When they married in 1996, they extended their range of adventure to include Newfoundland, aboard Yankee Lady, and the Bahamas, aboard Jim's boat Albatross.
