Author Chris Santella has assembled a crew of the world’s greatest championship racers and professional adventurers and persuades them to disclose their favorite destinations around the globe.
Featuring some of the best-known men and women in the sport-Tom Whidden and Gary Jobson (members of the winning 1987 America’s Cup crew), Jeff Johnstone (of J-Boats), award-winning sailing writer Lin Pardey, and many others-this is a unique full-color celebration for sailors to relive their greatest memories or plan their next big adventure.
The amazingly diverse places they’ve selected include:
Australia: Fremantle and SydneyBermuda: St. George’s HarborBrazil: Bay of Ilha GrandeCalifornia: Channel Islands and San Francisco BayChile: Cape HornHawaii: Lahaina to HonoluluItaly: Costa Smeralda, SardiniaMaine: Boothbay Harbor, Penobscot Bay, Southwest HarborFlorida: Biscayne Bay and Key WestScotland: Firth of ClydeSouth Africa: Cape TownAnd dozens more!For each of the 50 places, the sailor recommending the venue spins an entertaining yarn about their experience there, and each description is accompanied by a “make you want to go there now” photograph.
Santella writes in his introduction, “From the relative indolence of cruising the Dodecanese or the British Virgin Islands, to the white-knuckle adventure of rounding Cape Horn, to the thrill of partaking in the regatta off Newport, Fifty Places to Sail Before you Die attempts to capture the rich and varied world of recreational sailing. It’s my hope that it will inspire you to set sail on some new adventures of your own.”
This is the perfect book for a sailor to get as a gift or to buy for themselves!
