Does sailing mean spending big money? It does if by sailing you mean a 70-foot yacht complete with crew. But as journalist and avid sailor Johnson has learned, sailing can be affordable for those of us not in the country-club set. Johnson examines the do's and don'ts of buying, renting, and chartering sailboats, purchasing the right gear, and provisioning and docking the boat. All information is aimed at doing things as inexpensively as possible. Johnson provides tips and advice on getting started in sailing and includes a list of associations and clubs for the novice; programs specifically designed for women, children, and the disabled; and online resources. Detailed and pragmatic, this primer is indispensable for those without deep pockets who want to be on the open sea. Brian McCombie
