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.

Stan Russell has a rebellious but honorable soul, and good scotch appears his only vice. Service in a foreign war leads him on a mission to heal. Putting college behind his youthful curiosity leads him to Key West and a vintage schooner captained by a benevolent old mariner. His ladies, one a lovely exiled Cuban determined to aid her homeland and then yet another not so saintly, help steer Stan through intrigue from the islands to the mainland and back. All the while, self-serving powers in Washington force Stan to illicit actions justified by his honorable intentions. Turbulent political winds carry his schooner, Marie, from Key West to Cartejena and the Windwards north. Stan Russell's actions arouse the conscience of the country and directly force the President into the jaws of impeachment. A dark dream pervades the days and nights of this now far from ordinary pirate. Always on the run, death is forever gaining in his wake.
