The complete guide to racing in dinghies and yachts, packed with hands-on practical advice, user friendly instructional diagrams, and lively, inspirational photography.

Racing in dinghies and yachts is a uniquely challenging sport – no other form of racing puts you at the mercy of something as unpredictable as wind or current. To win, you need an understanding of the weather and of your craft, and an understanding of psychology, whether that's your own strategy and adaptability or your opponents'. The most thorough and comprehensive guide to sail racing ever written, The Sail Racing Bible avoids the overly technical, but includes theory to help you understand what you need to do, when and why.

Packed with step-by-step instructions, clear bird's-eye diagrams showing exactly what you need to do, tip boxes and checklists, tables and charts, this book is the racing coach you need by your side, at every stage of the race, and at every level from beginner to advanced. With up-and-coming racer Mason Stang and his superstar coach Udi Gal to hand, anyone – at whatever level – can turn yesterday's defeat into tomorrow's victory.
