High Performance Sailing
by Bethwaite, Frank
2nd ed. A detailed discussion of design and environmental factors that anyone can harness to improve performance on the racecourse. A longtime racing sailor, aeronautical engineer, and Australian Olympic coach, Bethwaite is intimately familiar with the effects of wind and waves on sailboats. His innovations can boost the average speed of high-performance sailboats from two-thirds wind-speed to wind-speed or faster.
