Sailing as a metaphor for life Aug 24, 2001
This book is about life. Most of it takes place on a sailboat (actually, several sailboats). It is not about sailing, although there is alot of sailing and misadventures about sailing in the book. If you have ever been sailing, ever owned a sailboat, or ever wanted to, you will enjoy this book. It is a very easy read. It is light hearted literature and the author is very honest about his sailing experiences (actually quite alot as a merchant marine officer in WWII, to recreational sailing in the Chesapeak and Narragansett Bays).
