Description - Before the Wind by David Gowdey

To sailors, the next best thing to sailing is reading about sailing. Here is a collection of 25 stories about sailing that will transport the reader into a waveswept cockpit in the Bay of Biscay, into the planning stages of an assault on the American Cup, or into an hilarious misadventure with a first boat-all from the dry comfort of a favorite armchair. Contributors include Ann Davison, Buckminster Fuller, Robert Louis Stevenson, Joshua Slocum, Ernest K. Gann, Raymond Carver, Clare Francis, Jack London, Frank Mulville, Alee Waugh, Bernard Moitessier, and Ted Turner.
