Written by a sailing Olympian, this has been
the most-trusted reference for racing sailors around the world for over
45 years and has sold 320,000 copies in the English language alone.
The unique approach devised by Paul Elvstrom
offers bird's-eye views and detailed explanations of how the rules are
applied to racing situations, with each cross-referenced to the relevant
case studies provided by World Sailing (formerly ISAF).
Completely revised to cover the new rules
for 2017-2020, Paul Elvstrom Explains also includes the full text of the
racing rules, with a handy quick-reference guide highlighting the latest
changes. There is also a confidence-building section on how to present
your case in a protest and the back cover shows signal flags for easy
reference on the race course.
This is the perfect pocket reference for
racers in every type of boat: dinghy, keelboat or yacht.
