Match Racing Playbook
by Perry, Dave
4th ed. Perry, one of the world’s foremost match racers and match racing coaches, compiled this comprehensive and coherent guide to match racing tactics. He shares insights into the how’s and why’s of match racing, covering pre-start dial-ups and escapes, and such tactics as Houdinis, lead/push attack and defence, shift right, soft and hard slams, weather mark convergences, downwind simos and cross-overs, and penalty-killing tricks. Plus there are pages of drills for singles or pairs that can quickly improve your match-racing skills. The Playbook includes an addendum covering the Experimental Match Racing Rules and related changes in tactics.
