For most sailors, boat tuning may seem a
mystery understood only by sailmakers and the like. In this book,
sailor, chandler and championship winner, Ian Pinnell, unravels this
daunting subject and will help improve your boatspeed as a result. Since
most races are won or lost by a difference of less than 2% of racing
time, you will soon be moving up the fleet. With hundreds of photos and
diagrams to illustrate every point, the book clearly explains what each
control does and how to set it up optimally for different conditions.
Additional troubleshooting and skills sections take things even further,
making this the bible of dinghy tuning.
“Ian Pinnell, who has won more championships
than most of us can dream of, explains with clear text, photographs and
diagrams how to tune your dinghy for maximum boat speed. Once you have
that, you can concentrate on your own performance.” - Iain Percy
