Team racing is fast and furious. It places a great deal of emphasis on teamwork, boat handling and rules knowledge. It is a fun sport in its own right and a great way of learning to become a future champion.
This invaluable compact reference guide is packed full with diagrams to illustrate the concepts and manoeuvres described. Covering the most useful moves around the race course, and the key rules that govern such moves, it also has sections on how to slow and how to overtake; how to win at the start and how to control the final beat; the best routines for practising; how to develop as a team, from beginner to champion; the process for umpired sailing; and team roles.
Whether you are an Optimist sailor, coach or parent, a student sailing for your school or college, or a club keelboat sailor looking to join in the club’s team racing activities, this book will help you improve your results and increase your fun. A must-have guide written by a National Championship Winner, World Championship Winning Coach and Umpire.
