About the Author
John Rousmaniere (pronounced Room-an-ear) has more than 30,000 miles of water in his wake since he started sailing in Maine more than forty years ago. One of the sport's acknowledged authorities, he has written fifteen technical and historical books, including "The Illustrated Dictionary of Boating Terms, Desirable and Undesirable Characteristics of Offshore Yachts, " and ""Fastnet, Force 10."" The latter book is about the infamous 1979 Fastnet Race, in which Rousmaniere sailed, and was hailed as "a narrative worthy of the best sea literature" by the "Los Angeles Times."
Rousmaniere is the host and writer of the acclaimed "Annapolis Book of Seamanship" Yacht Video Series, is a former editor at "Yachting, " and has served as the regular seamanship columnist for "Sailing World" magazine and "SailNet, " an Internet sailing magazine. He has lectured at more than thirty Safety-at-Sea Seminars sponsored nationwide by "Cruising World" magazine, the U.S. Sailing Association, and West Marine. He won the Captain Fred E. Lawton Boating Safety Award for outstanding contribution to boating safety through the media. He and his wife, the mystery writer Leah Ruth Robinson, live in Stamford, Connecticut.
