A new classic from one of the world's most respected sailing authors
More than 35 years ago, Hal Roth quit his job as a journalist and went sailing. Since then, he's logged more than 200,000 sea miles. Along the way, Roth also has authored eight voyaging classics, including the 1978 bestseller After 50,000 Miles.
Taking that book as its starting point, this handsome new volume incorporates the new technologies and discoveries of the last quarter century along with another 150,000 miles of experience.
A compendium of mature, time-tested sea wisdom from one of the world's most respected sailing writers, How to Sail Around the World will tell the reader:
How to choose and equip a sailboat for long-distance cruising, with an emphasis on simplicity and a modest budget
How to plan and conduct a voyage anywhere in the world
How to master the arts of navigation, anchoring, and daily life aboard in exotic places
How to cope with storms at sea--the most complete and authoritative treatise on this critical topic ever published
