ALTHOUGH I BEGAN WORK on The Sailmaker’s Apprentice sixteen years ago, it would be a mess o’ galley whispers to suggest that its creation
has been a concerted sixteen-year effort. Rather, it has been an intermittent process marked by setbacks, diversions, some lucky breaks, and much
encouragement from family and friends. So fid out your earholes while I spin a bit of a yarn about the process.
I wrote the pieces of this book in pretty much the same sequence in which they now appear, although recently acquired facts, updates, and inspirations were inserted in later drafts of the manuscript. Portions of The SailmaJcer’sApprentice are reprints of material originally published in WoodenBoat magazine under my adoptive name, Malcolm Wehncke.
More recently, I became “the Sail Doctor” for a question-and-answer column in Small Boat Journal magazine. That column and other pieces reprinted here were published under the stage name and nom de plume Malcolm Howes. I then entered a whole new life by finding my birth parents, their families, and my biological heritage. I have since woven a new identity for myself that has incorporated not only my family heritages but also my chosen name, Emiliano Marino.
I remain one of the many sailors who sees sailing as a means of holding onto a natural interaction with the earth and its elements. There are sailmakers who still practice the old ways of building sails—ways that, comparatively speaking, placed humans in balance with nature. I invite you, my apprentice, to seek that balance too by taking up the needle and palm, and by ploughing the oceans of the earth under sail, hearing the wind, with wings you’ve made yourself with your own magic and your own hands.
