A bit dated, perhaps, and it would have meant a lot more to me if I could have actually BOUGHT a sailboat after reading it, but alas, it was not to be. I did get US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification, though. Lots of fun rescuing that drowning boat cushion whilst singlehandedly sailing that 27-foot Catalina in a circle.
