One of the funniest books ever published on its subject -- Sailing, The New York Times bestseller, is back. And better than ever. A classic, Sailing, is "...quite simply the funniest book I have ever read" (William F. Buckley Jr.)
From Ahoy -- "The first in a series of four-letter words commonly exchanged by skippers as their boats approach each other" -- to Zephyr --"A warm, pleasant breeze named after the mythical Greek god of wishful thinking, false hopes, and unreliable forecasts"-- it brings new meaning to the things said at sea.
