Skipper’s Cockpit Racing Guide:  For Dinghies, Keelboats and Yachts

By Tim Davison


An at-a-glance reference for dinghy and yacht racers, how to improve performance.  Splash-proof, lie-flat guide covers significant detail in a concise format. Topics are broken down into photo sequences, boxes, flowcharts, hints and tips.  Covers: - setting your goals - assembling the right boat and gear - practising and tuning (straight line, tacking, gybing, rounding marks, doing penalties) - starting (planning, set-up of rig and foils) - race strategy (beating, reaching, running) - tactics against the opposition - crewing skills (trim, weight) - tides and currents (what affects the flow, using them to your advantage) - wind (wind shadows, wind bends, forecasts) - spinnakers (symmetric, asymmetric, hoist, gybe, drop) - rules (start, beat, reach, run)
