This second volume (1939-1970) of Waldo Howland's sailing autobiography is the most detailed, comprehensive, and authoritative account of two of America's most popular and durable classes of one-design sailboats: the Beetle Cat and the Concordia Yawl. Part formal history, part memoir and affectionate group portrait, part meditation on the joys of sailing, this is the story of an exceptional 30-year period in American yachting and small-boat activity.
