Re: Sailing books

Lots of great suggestions here, and to the list I would add "The Why Book of Sailing" by Scott's a great collection of information and stories about boats, sailing, weather, etc. infused with good humor, and written by a cruiser. I've given copies to several newbie sailors and they have all seemed to enjoyed reading it and maybe even learned something as well.
