Team racing is fast and furious. It places a great deal of emphasis on teamwork, boat handling and rules knowledge. It is a fun sport in its own right and a great way of learning to become a future champion.
Packed full with diagrams to illustrate the text, this companion describes the most useful moves around the race course, and the key rules that govern such moves. There are then sections on how to slow and how to overtake; how to win the start and how to control the final beat; the best routines for practising; how to develop as a team, from beginner to champion; the process for umpired sailing; and team roles, and how to make sure everyone enjoys playing a full part in the team.
So whether you are an Optimist sailor, coach or parent, a student sailing for your school or college, or a club keelboat sailor looking to join in the club's team racing activities, this is the best investment you can make to improve your results and increase your fun.
Chris Atkins has distilled his 40 years experience as a National Championship Winner, World Championship Winning Coach and Umpire into this handy, splash-proof, companion.
