Written by one of the leading experts in safety at sea, this book contains all you'd want to know about sailing and sailboats, but where it really shines is in its coverage of weather, piloting and navigation. Speed is what we who race sailboats fervently desire. It is seldom discussed openly; instead, it hovers ominously about like a family secret—privy only to a special few. All of us are duly addicted, though, and the object of our craving is to sprint gloriously, drunkenly, to the finish with wings on our heels.
This sailing classic, first published in , is now available as an e-book.

Sailing – the freedom and the pleasure of feeling the wind and the water in your face is unbeatable. If you’ve never sailed the high seas, but still long to feel the pleasure of doing so, reading about sailing and great voyages might be the next best thing. Here are 8 great sailing books for your reading pleasure. Tony Marchaj, an avid sailor and independent aerodynamics consultant, theorizes that the "increased casualities amongst contemporary yachts" is due to modern sailing yacht design, which, he feels, often sacrifices safety for speed. In this book, the author attempts to objectively consider "the design features" which contribute to a sailing. A logbook is important on a sailboat for recording all sorts of information. Originally the logbook was for navigation, named for the "log" thrown overboard on a line for a speed determination based on how many " knots " in the line were pulled out in a given : Tom Lochhaas.
