NEWPORT, R.I. - Dec. 4, 2015 - PRLog -- Humphrey Bogart spent some 40 weekends a year sailing his Olin Stephens designed yacht Santana, and earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most accomplished racers and skippers in Southern California. Be it a long race around the islands or at anchor off some pebbled beach, Bogie felt at ease amongst sailors, whose respect he had earned both on and off the waters. He referred to Santana as "the other world" and revealed a side of himself to his sailing friends that no one else saw.

"Sailing means something different to everyone who does it, from a casual flirtation with the wind to a deeply important, essential part of life," says Bogart's sailing and racing-partner Larry Dudley. "Bogart already had a full life when he bought Santana - success in his profession, a beautiful young wife whom he adored, a family to start and raise, but there was something unique that sailing Santana gave him, [becoming] a sailor among sailors, master of a finite but complete world where he was at ease, accepted as a skilled helmsman, boat handler and sometime competitor."

In Sailing with Bogie: A Memoir of Humphrey Bogart's Passion for the Sea, Dudley shows us Bogart the fervent competitor, the accomplished helmsman, and the boon companion to sailing colleagues from all walks of life.

In the process he also reveals a fine soul, an honorable and dedicated friend, and a man with a great capacity for joy, whether on sea or land.
