Getting Started in Sailboat Racing
1stPublisher: International Marine PublishingFormat: Paperback
The only similar books on the market are written for owners and racers of high-performance dinghies or specific one-design boats like Lasers and Optimists. These boats require a whole set of sailing techniques (roll-tacking, using a trapeze, hiking straps, etc) that are of little interest to owners and sailors of larger daysailers and cruising boats. A key emphasis of the book is that sailboat racing is accessible to sailors and sailboats of all kinds - not just hot-shot racers in overpriced racing sloops or yacht-club kids in high-performance dinghies. This book will be of great value to young sailors, but of even greater importance to older sailors who already own cruising boats or daysailers and are interested in taking their sailing to the next level.
