books by Garry Hoyt include:
Go For The Gold - 1971
This book was conceived
in audacity and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created beatable. It is an attempt to jostle you into
the realization that winning, or placing better, is as much as anything, a state of mind, an attitude. The author’s
aim is to home in on those areas where just a small adjustment will yield big yards, and places at the finish. You will
likely find more straight talk in this book than in any other sailing book you have read.
In this book, author Hoyt examines the symptoms and causes of the current stagnation in the sailing world.
He questions yachting’s inbred conservatism and the accompanying tendency to view innovation as the enemy of tradition.
He proposes new courses of action and radical design solutions for renewed growth in sailing.
Verde - 2001
Set in the 1960’s this adventure novel traces the story of a divorced
American marine, and a Puerto Rican woman of unusual beauty. The plot delves incisively into the complex world of Puerto
Rican politics, providing rare insights into the emotional ambivalence Puerto Ricans feel over their citizenship relationship
with the United
The reader will come away with the pleasure of a rousing adventure story, plus a new understanding of the simmering nationalism
and divided loyalties in this little understood part of America.

Comments on Go For The Green by Nathaniel
Philbrick, The New York Times best selling author of In The Heart Of
The Sea, Sea Of Glory and Mayflower:
"In the 70's I, like many competitive sailors of my generation, inhaled Go For The Gold. Hoyt has done it again. With Go
For The Green, he delivers a fascinating and provocative critique of the sport we love. The times have
changed but not, thankfully, Garry Hoyt's ability to see into the essence of things with flair and originality."
