'Monumental!' - Bob Ross, Australian SailingHigh Performance Sailing isnow regarded as the bible of racing sailors and carries a string ofendorsements from high achievers. Since its publication in 1984, racingyachts and dinghies have developed out of all recognition - a newhigh-tech breed of 'apparent wind' fast racers has claimed the waterand so far no-one has applied themselves seriously to analysing whatmakes these boats sail fast (and what will make them faster). This is Frank Bethwaite's ground-breaking achievement in Higher Performance Sailing.By means of extensive research, and working with sailors of differentracing calibre, Bethwaite analyses how to harness the apparent windfor increased speed and better position on your rivals. Higher Performance Sailing willprovide the key to racing sailors' dreams. Praise for Bethwaite's High Performance Sailing:'It represents a breakthrough...It is a book that my Olympic squad will benefit from.'Rod Carr, former British Olympic Sailing Team Manager'Allowed only one &quote;if only&quote; in yacht racing, it would have been to have read Higher Performance Sailing years ago.'Bob Fisher, journalist, broadcaster and international championship winner
