Captain Pat and Captain Peter

Patricia Fatland, age seven, suffered from a nervous disorder which prevented her from being able to talk. She had a longtime dream of sailing ever since seeing a boat in books. The Tacoma Yacht Club invited Patricia and her family to ride aboard the "Principia," the official boat in the annual Tacoma Yacht Club New Year's races.
