Publisher Comments:

As I sit at my computer surrounded by pictures of 'Rebel' and 'Blue Lady' recording memories of my sailing life, I know just how lucky I have been. Had I been just a few years earlier in arriving on this earth, I would have missed the chance of a middle class working stiff to own such boats. Only one generation earlier had no opportunity to own and sail the boats I have known.

Author J. Howard Williams experienced a variety of jobs in his lifetime, from a CPA to a marina manager to a boat salesman. But through it all, his heart has belonged to sailing.

Journey with Williams through a lifetime of sailing adventures in Love at First Sight. On his sailboats Sooner, Sooner II, Rebel, Rebel II, and Blue Lady, he sailed well over 100,000 good and bad miles. On the water of Galveston Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, the Bahamas and the Atlantic coast from 1950 to 1990, Williams experienced and now shares a lifetime of joy for and fascination with the world of sailing.
