Description
What makes people so passionate about sailing?

What are the personal stories behind famous achievements and tragedies at sea? Why are certain people attracted to extreme sailing challenges and how do they cope?

No matter how well-equipped the boat, or or how well-prepared its skipper and crew, the success or failure of a voyage lies mostly in the mind: an outcome of attitude and will. In "The Mind of the Sailor, Peter Noble, a psychiatrist and experienced sailor, and Ros Hogbin, a circumnavigator and writer, analzye the psychological aspects of sailing and life at sea. They examine famous seafaring mysteries and misadventures and interview sailing experts to explore the effects of stress and isolation, crew tensions, and quality of leadership.

"The Mind of the Sailor provides intriguing insights on what makes a good skipper and a happy, cohesive crew, and fascinating reinterpretations of notorious sailing tragedies.
