This is a book about the excitement of sailing. The characters, the adventures, the disasters?and the quiet little drink afterwards. No sport generates more anecdotes than ocean racing. It's a world rich in bizarre incidents, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie, and engaging humor Yachting yarns are the wellspring of a unique folklore that stretches back more than a century. All Piss and Wind celebrates that free-wheeling, larrikin spirit. The author, David Salter, is Australia's leading columnist and feature writer on the sport of offshore sailing. Salter draws on a treasure-trove of stories and lifetime of personal involvement. He provides a first hand, deck-eye view of a world where the line between fun and survival can be perilously thin. All Piss and Wind carries the conviction of experience and the authority of knowledge?all enlivened by the author's sure ear for humor.
