R. Bruce Macdonald is a local sailor and writer who has logged over 100,000 nautical miles primarily in command of traditionally rigged vessels. His writing has appeared in publications such as Cruising World, SAIL magazine, Canadian Yachting, Pacific Yachting, Ocean Navigator, Voile et Voiliers, and he is the former contributing editor to Sailing Canada. His last book, North Star of Herschel Island: Canada's Arctic tall ship, was reviewed by Farley Mowat as, "one helluva great book about one helluva great ship" and by former Prime Minister of Canada, Jean Chretien, as, "an important book that every Canadian should read."
