John's presentation is entitled "WEST COAST SUB ATTACKS DURING WWII."  The California coast was SWARMING with Japanese submarines in the weeks immediately following the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Between December 10, 1941 and October 1942, nine Japanese submarines sunk a dozen merchant ships between Vancouver and San Diego as well as shelling the California coast on more than one occasion--episodes little remembered today. His talk is based on interviews he conducted with the Japanese naval officers who participated in the attacks. These interviews form the backbone of his non-fiction book, OPERATION STORM, which "The Wall Street Journal" called, "a fascinating, meticulously researched, and deft account."

In 2005, at the age of 51, she became the second woman to finish the single handed leg of the Bermuda 1,2 ( the first having finished hours before her) and on the return leg to Newport her crew member was another woman, together they became the first women’s team to compete and finish both legs of the Bermuda 1,2. A record they still hold. She has spoken around the country about heart disease, the number killer of women, and uses her experience of both being a nurse assisting in open heart surgery and single handing to Bermuda to educate women about heart disease and empowering them to take control of their health.
