The bookstore nearest us has four shelves on America's national pastime, baseball - and SIX on sailing. (Sailing, we guess, is merely America's national obsession.)

Picture island hopping on your private yacht, swimming in some remote coves, hiking, dining al fresco on deck, windsurfing, snorkeling, Aegean air warming your cheeks and a Mediterranean sun massaging your back. Envision friends who, a week after your trip, ask: "Done something to your hair? You look different." And feel it, too.
