Helming To Win spotlights the techniques that will maximise your boatspeed. Two of the fastest sailors in the world explain how to tune the rig and set the sails. They look at each pint of sailing and explain how to make the boat go - in all windstrengths and in all sea conditions. The race itself is analysed, from starting techniques to picking the best end of the finish line. Helming To Win is right up to date with advice on twin-wiring and asymmetric spinnakers, and a final section highlights the important elements of putting together a campaign - time management, attitude, boat preparation and feel. This book will propel you to the front line of the fleet, and kaybe into the lead. At last you'll be racing, instead of just sailing round the course trying to avoid the other boats.

Unless you have unbeatable boatspeed, tactics are vital to winning sailboat races. Multi-champion, Nick Craig, shows you how to develop a strategy and what tactics to adopt on every leg and at every mark of the course. His first book, Helming to Win, was described as “original, thought provoking... like no other that has gone before it”. He now turns his highly analytical mind to the subject of tactics. He discusses the inputs into strategy, starting and the race plan (going through each leg in turn). Nick then tackles mark tactics, covering every different type of mark, and fleet tactics on every leg of the course. He finally focusses on boat-to-boat tactics, again on every leg of the course. In each situation he covers attacking and defensive tactics, either to get ahead or make sure you stay ahead. Non-spinnaker, symmetrical spinnaker and asymmetric dinghies are all covered because Nick has won world or national championships in each of these types of boats. Having read Nick’s first book many said that it had transformed the way they sailed. This book will have the same effect on your tactics and should see you moving up the leaderboard.
