Learn how to handle a cruising sailboat in as little as seven days—even if you’ve never sailed before! Who says you have to be an experienced daysailor before you can think about cruising? Steve and Doris Colgate know that most of us don’t have that kind of time. At the Offshore Sailing School, the Colgates have helped more than 100,000 adults—three-quarters of whom started as beginning sailors or complete newcomers--take the helm of a midsize cruising sailboat. Now Fast Track to Cruising offers these proven instructional methods to all aspiring sailors with big dreams and little time. This is the very first guide that teaches sailing and cruising together, taking you from your first sail to independent cruising in one leap. You can make that leap in as little as seven days—as in the Colgates’ “Fast Track to Cruising” course—or you can get there at a more leisurely pace. Either way, no other book will take you from your first tacking or docking maneuver to a mastery of navigation and diesel engines as efficiently as this one. "America's most experienced sailing instructors present a thorough and easy to understand look at cruising. Leisure time is precious. Safety is paramount. The Colgates will help you maximize your time on the water."--Gary Jobson, ESPN's lead sailing analyst and editor at large for Cruising World and Sailing World “Doris and Steve Colgate understand that people want to reach their sailing goals as quickly as possible and they've built the excellent Fast Track program to accomplish it.”--Bernadette Bernon, former editorial director of Cruising World magazine "Together Steve and Doris Colgate have been teaching beginners to sail for over half a century. In Fast Track to Cruising they have included every concept and procedure you need to get yourself from a want-to-be sailor to one who is knowledgeable and competent to take the helm--with confidence and a smile."--Charles Mason, Executive Editor, SAIL magazine

Memoirs Of A Scheduler Aka Junk Yard Dog

This book is to my knowledge accurate although as we all know some things get embellished with repeated telling. The company names are not real, as well as many of the names of individuals. Those who are in it can probably easily fi gure out who they are in this book. The story starts with Telecommunications back in the analog and live operators plugging in cords for local calls; then moves briefl y through Purchasing and Data Processing with the fi rst corporate main frame; and then to scheduling. It is more about me and my travels than it is about scheduling. The discipline took me to some very exotic places such as Tehran, Iran; Bergen Norway; Madrid Spain; Leyte Island; Jakarta, Dieng, Bali all in Indonesia; and Hawaii. It is also is a chronicle of some of my very good friends and lovers over the years. I hope all of you that read this enjoy it as much as I have in telling it.
