Helming To Win spotlights the techniques
that will maximise your boatspeed. Two of the fastest sailors in the
world explain how to tune the rig and set the sails. They look at each
pint of sailing and explain how to make the boat go - in all
windstrengths and in all sea conditions. The race itself is analysed,
from starting techniques to picking the best end of the finish line.
Helming To Win is right up to date with
advice on twin-wiring and asymmetric spinnakers, and a final section
highlights the important elements of putting together a campaign - time
management, attitude, boat preparation and feel.
This book will propel you to the front line
of the fleet, and kaybe into the lead. At last you'll be racing, instead
of just sailing round the course trying to avoid the other boats. PB.
