Rev. ed. A racing classic. Long out of print, it has champions who have been petitioning hard for its reissue. It is considered the best book ever written on the subject, and presents in detail techniques which are still completely relevant and applicable today. The author provides a very thorough analysis and explanation of how to read the wind and currents in all conditions on a racecourse, and explains how a good knowledge and understanding of their vagaries by the racer can be used advantageously to enhance boat performance on the racecourse, and carry both helm and crew further up the fleet.
