Bermuda

THE SECRET OF BERMUDA

When 'Finisterre,' an unconventional little potbelly of a yawl, won the Bermuda Race in 1956 yachtsmen declared her a 'rule-beater' that reaped enormous handicap benefits over competitors under the complex racing rules. When she did it again in 1958, shattering precedent, Mitchell himself modestly stated that the race was a gamble anyway. But when she won it this year for the third time in a row there was left only one explanation: superior skill and knowledge rode with her veteran captain and crew. Much of that knowledge Mitchell imparted before the race (SI, June 27), but there was one maxim he left out. Here it is now: a piece of strategy he considers the key to victory

Wilderness

THE LAND OF SILENCE

'It's a case of people vs. bobcats,' was the way one critic characterized arguments for preserving pure wilderness areas in America. Most often, of course, the bobcat loses. Why he should get the nod once in a while is explained here in the poetic story of a wilderness reserve where people tread softly but breathe deeply of a rejuvenating atmosphere which, after all, is their heritage too
