A decent collection of stories. Out of 28 stories, I've bookmarked 7 to recommend to others to read, not all stories are actually "great".That said, it is quite varied, so I'd still recommend it if, like me, you are new to the genre of sailing stories and don't even know which types you might enjoy. I now have a list of books I'd like to read in full, so I'm glad I read this anthology.
This is more excepts of 27 sailing books/short stories. I’d recommended checking out the full books for the chapters of interest.
We are going to start including sailing in our lifestyle this year, and my wife gave this book to me as a present. The stories are interesting and fun, and this is what I would call a very light read. Just a great book to have on your bookshelf for when you want to relax.
Very good collection of short stories or excerpts from classics centered on sailing and the sea. Excellent book for discovering authors that specialize in this genre. I am using it to launch into other works by some of the featured writers.
Most of these stories were ok, some were boring and a few were great. The title is misleading.
Sharing these stories with my 11 yr. old son who says he wants a life of adventure!
