A practical book full of the information a prospective cruiser needs. The authenticity of this advice is guaranteed by the long experience of the author who has cruised miles around the world. (He is the author of Hurricane's Wake.) Every year there are slight changes in design, opinions on rigging, ballast, sail, etc., and naturally a new book gives all the latest and best wrinkles. This means you can sell it to people who have similar books as well as the novice.
