Description: Ranging from the relaxed delight of an escapist drifting in a quiet bywater to the
competitive zeal of the crew of an America's Cup yacht, sailing offers an amazing
range of challenges and rewards. No other sport has more variations, and Bill Robinson
has experienced most of them—international regattas, single-handed passages,
prize-winning ocean racers, cruising around the world and in the channels and
tidal flats that are the waters of his home. The pleasures of his advice include clarity
and humor. Every kind of sailing enthusiast will enjoy and learn from what he has to
say about the how and why of making a boat go under sail, basic rigs, one-design,
level, handicap and distance racing, day sailing, cruising areas and boats, the history
and color of major competitions, and "the long voyagers" who sail far and often
alone.
