Book
Sailing Smart is for every sailor who wants to increase his or her knowledge, understanding, and sailing expertise: the local day-sailor who wants a firmer grasp of the fundamentals, as well as the serious competitor who wants to be up on the latest, most innovative sailing techniques and racing strategies. Buddy Melges, one of the world's best-known sailors, has at last set down his highly original thoughts on how to sail well. He covers the full range of sailing experience, from the general to the specific, the basic to the highly sophisticated. Melges's message is delivered in a bright, uncluttered manner by way of applications from his own sailing experience and through step-by-step instructions on everything from basic boat handling to expert on-the-course tactics and maneuvers. The book is profusely illustrated by the noted sailing artist Ted Brennan, and each drawing is accompanied by a cogent, in-depth explanatory caption.

"When the best sailor in the world, Buddy Melges, reveals his secrets of success through a gifted writer, Charles Mason, one might expect the resulting book to be something special. Sailing Smart is that and more! Every sailor can learn from this book-- especially the good sailor who aspires to become very good."--Bob Bavier, Yachting

"Buddy Melges is so thorough, so clear, and so giving that any sailor who absorbs and applies his advice can't help but win. He is witty, entertaining, and sincere in his desire to promote better sailors....It's a book you can't stop reading."--Doris Colgate, Offshore Sailing School
