YACHTING IN NORTH AMERICA

This introduces a new sporting books line, under the editorship of the onetime owner of The Derrydale Press, hallmark of fine limiteds in this field.... This is a goldmine of information for the yachtsman, whether he is the owner of a 14 foot outboard motor boat on fresh water inland waterways, or of a 64 foot ketch on blue water. Nine experts survey the Atlantic coastline from Cape Breton Island to Florida, the inland waterway paralleling the coast; the Great Lakes, the Inland Canadian Lakes and Rivers, the Mississippi River System, the Gulf of Mexico, the California waters, the Oregon Coast, Puget Sound and Vancouver. Problems of navigation, of piloting, of harbors, tides, currents, winds, of yacht clubs, of characteristics of the regions, even down to oddities, fish to be caught, and so on. In no sense a guidebook, descriptively speaking, but for the yachtsman, a navigating guide of inestimable value.
