For every serious racing sailor, a guide to utilising all the available designs, techniques and tactics to gain a faster edge.
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 all racing sailors, from dinghies right through to the America’s Cup. 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. P/B 422 pages
