Re: What is the best Sailing book you have read?

Any or all of Bernard Moitessier's books; he's one of the few who writes more about the sailing, than the places he visits.
"Deep Water and Shoal" by William Albert Robinson. A true classic, up there w/ Slocum's marvelous tale.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
