Higher Performance Sailing: Faster Racing
Some people like to sail. Some people like
to sail fast. This is a book about sailing faster. During the past few
decades there has been a revolution in the way some boat designers and
sailors have thought about, designed, built and sailed their boats. This
book is about the new ideas which have led to these greater speeds and
the faster sailing techniques which have been developed to achieve them.
High Performance Sailing
has become the standard reference work on high speed racing techniques -
the bible for racing sailors, from dinghies right through to America's
Cup boats. Ground-breaking in its thinking on boat speed, strategy and
tactics, and timeless in its application, it is a book 'which no serious
racing yachtsman should be without.' (Kelvin Hughes)
Now in its second edition, High Performance
Sailing has been brought right up to date with new information, the
discoveries from new boat testing and new developments.
