Wind Strategy: the hidden advantage of the aware sailor Jul 14, 2008
This book has brought out details of racing factors which definitely affect a races outcome. It is readable and immediately usable. It definitely promotes further insightfulness to sailing venues and awareness of conditions affecting the wind, which in no small part determines the outcome of any race. I recommend this book to any sailor who wishes to take the next step into a more technical relm of sailing.
Another wind book for ocean racers Jun 8, 2007
I am always looking for a book that can help me sail in Kansas. Kansas is the place where the forcast is 10 to 15, but the wind can be 3 or 25 knots. The wind on our last race was 305 to 342 with shifts about 2.5 minutes.
For a small lake sailer this book does have some information, but not what is needed.
