Inhaltsangabe: Wind Strategy is written especially for the racing sailor and shows how to predict the wind over the area of the racecourse, during the race, using simple 'rules of thumb' which apply anywhere in the world. It has been the bible since its introduction in 1984, and has been revised in the light of the author's experience at several Olympic Games, and in the northern and southern hemispheres. Learn how to predict the sea breeze, how the wind bends as it crosses the coastline and where the strongest winds will be on a racecourse. Plus, how the wind behaves on inland lakes and rivers
From the Back Cover: This book is gold dust for sailors.
Will there be a sea breeze today?
Will one side of the course have better wind?
Will the wind shift during the race?
For nearly 20 years Wind Strategy has given sailors the answer to these questions and many more. It gives a set of basic principles so that you can predict the wind's behaviour virtually anywhere in the world. It shows how the wind will shift and bend over the relatively small area of the racecourse, and how it is modified by:
The book also gives specific wind advice for over 20 popular venues, from the Solent to Sydney.
In short, Wind Strategy gives you the "local knowledge" you need to become a winner.
Recommended for all racing sailors.
