Round the World in the Wrong Season, by Eric T. Wiberg - Written between 1994 and 2009, is a memoir of global travel and an unfulfilled college crush. The book follows the narrator out of school and across the Pacific. At only 23 he has command of a 68-foot Burmese-teak ketch built in Scotland thrust upon him. The owner is on a voyage home to his death, and along the way they hire sailors twice the skipper's age. They makes it to New Zealand in a storm which sinks seven yachts, then spends months shearing sheep and writing a memoir. By the time the narrator makes a rendezvous with his college sweetheart (who has been teaching Thai students on the Burmese border), she seems to have all but forgotten him. This leads to a less than satisfactory denouement and puts at least one of them in the hospital. The book includes extensive photographs and hand-drawn charts and a detailed bibliography. It is over 400 pages in length, perfect bound in cloth. More and The narrator takes you to dozens of countries, only to find that in every single place it is the wrong season to be there: late fall in New England, rainy season in Central America, cyclone season in the South Pacific, winter in New Zealand, bush-fire and backpacker-killing season in Australia, rainy and monsoon season in Southeast Asia and finally winter in Scandinavia, England and the Caribbean. Welcome to this adventurous world, and come along for a memorable and humorous ride. Eric Wiberg has over 80,000 nautical miles of seagoing and command experience aboard over 100 vessels, most of them sailing yachts. Following the events recounted herein, he operated a fleet of tankers in Singapore. He has written several books about travel and naval history. A licensed maritime lawyer, he provides business development services to the bulk shipping industry. A citizen of Sweden and the US, he grew up in the Bahamas and lives with his wife and son in Connecticut.
