For Gary Jobson—the three-time All American sailor, America’s Cup
winner, Fastnet Race winner, and ESPN sailing commentator since
1985—sailing is life.
In 2003, he was diagnosed with lymphoma, and here
he relays the tumultuous diagnosis and treatments endured before the
cancer went into remission. Through remission he remembers how his life
has intertwined with some of the greatest sailors, how the sport has
changed since his childhood, how the public view of sailing went through
a revolutionary change with the advent of ESPN, how sailing can create
lasting bonds of friendship that endure, and how sailing offers
everything from the highest of adventures to the simplest of pleasures.
This uplifting memoir also includes a foreword by Ted Turner.
