This book will give a flying start to your competitive career. Whatever class of boat you sail and whatever your experience, these principles will ensure you are at the front of the fleet and better prepared than the opposition. The book is illustrated with stunning step-by-step photographs and common pitfalls are highlighted. Starting with the basics of choosing which boat to race and where to race it, you will be introduced to the rules of racing and learn about rigging, tactics, training, strategy and tuning your boat. “Racing” is aimed at helms and crew: their skills are complementary and a fast boat is one with a good team on board.
