"The Heart of the Sea"

The saga of shipwrecked sailors who take to their long boats after thier vessel is sunk by a sperm whale. True story which inspired Melville to write "Moby"

Unbelievable!

Before Stuart Woods became a famous action/mystery writer, he wrote a true story of his sailing experiences around England and across the Atlantic. I found it to be a great precusor to his later fiction writings. The title is, "Blue Water Green Skipper".

Plot Your Course to Adventure

Anybody interested in an excellent NEW book that combines honest cruising narrative with a wealth of "How To" information should check out Roger Olson's 644 page book "Plot Your Course to Adventure".

Visiting his web site at: www.plotyourcoursetoadventure.com

Roger has accumulated a life-time of knowledge and cruising experience that are combined to make his book enjoyable for both the arm chair sailor and those planning a blue water cruise.

Championship Tactics by Jobson. It's a hard read but the information inside changed the way I sail. Most sailors and/or crews don't have the skills to begin to consider the options this book explores. It really opens your mind as to why some people keep winning and others just whine about them winning. I fit into the category of not having the skills to use all the information. But I was able to use some and understand why others were just out performing me.
