Publisher Comments:

and#8220;Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.and#8221;

--Mark Twain

Itand#8217;s telling that Mark Twain chose sailing as a metaphor for living life to the fullest. Throughout history, humankind has been going to sea in boats and shipsand#8212;for the purposes of trade, exploration, transport, fishing, and pure enjoyment.

Novelists, politicians, explorers, playwrights, poets, musicians, and celebrities weigh in on life upon the water, under sail. These are just some of the folks whose words appear in these pages:

and#8226;Daniel Defoe

and#8226;Ted Kennedy

and#8226;Charles Dickens

and#8226;Franklin Roosevelt

and#8226;Herman Melville

and#8226;Dennis Connor

and#8226;Patrick Oand#8217;Brian

and#8226;Larry Ellison

and#8226;Thor Heyerdahl

and#8226;Jack London

and#8226;Isak Dinesen

and#8226;William F. Buckley

and#8226;And dozens of others!
