Salter writes with engaging affection, good humour and knowledge. Nobody tells a yachting yarn better' Sir James Hardy OBE This is a book about the excitement of sailing. The characters, the adventures, the disasters and the quiet little drink afterwards. No sport generates more anecdotes than ocean racing. It's a world rich in bizarre incidents, outrageous behaviour, intense camaraderie and engaging humour. The author, David Salter, is Australia's leading columnist and feature writer on the sport of offshore sailing. Drawing on a treasure-trove of stories and lifetime of personal involvement, he provides a firsthand, deck-eye view of a world where the line between fun and survival can be perilously thin. All Piss & Wind carries the conviction of experience and the authority of knowledge all enlivened by the author's sure ear for humour.
