Windvane or autopilot - it is one of the eternal questions of long-distance sailing. This practical guide brings clarity to the debate: it investigates the technologies behind all of today's common self-steering systems, explains which solutions are best suited to which type of boat with respect to size and construction, describes how to make the most of the various options on offer and examines the relative advantages and disadvantages of each. Which systems are good for racing and which for cruising? What are the limitations of each in terms of sea conditions and power consumption? Why is proper sail trim so important for good self-steering? Peter Förthmann answers these questions and more without resort to complicated diagrams and impenetrable technical speak. A comprehensive resource written from a wealth of personal experience, this book is full of clearly explained tips to help you choose the right self-steering solution and bring the best out of it in use. An overview of the market and a directory of almost all the self-steering systems available right around the world complete the picture.

Based on 25 years of research and Olympic coaching, High Performance Sailing reinvents the strategies of sailboat racing. It presents revolutionary explanations of wind prediction and boat design, a fundamental rethinking of how to sail a boat fast--literally faster than the wind. Bethwaite's theories boosted the average speed of the highest-performance sailboats from two-thirds the windspeed to windspeed or faster. Bethwaite is Australia's most successful Olympic coach, and his family includes three Olympic sailing champions and three world champions. This book will have a revolutionary impact on racing sailboats and the way they are sailed. "Essential for any serious racing sailor."--Gary Jobson "It represents a breakthrough in the way that it relates the theoretical aspects of wind, seastate and rig shape to the way a crew would sail and handle a boat during a race. It has the potential to be a standard reference work on the subject and will not quickly date. It is a book that my Olympic squad will benefit from."--Rod Carr, British Olympic Sailing Team Manager "Frank's book is a treasure chest, full of brilliant insights into the ways of air and water as they flow around our sailing boats. Best of all, he tells us what to do when we go sailing."--Alan Payne, Designer of America's Cup challengers Gretal I and II "Allowed only one 'if only' in yacht racing . . . it would have been to have read Frank Bethwaite's High Performance Sailing years ago and to have it available for constant reference. Taking all the advice which he offers from his wide experience would have made championship winning a great deal easier."--Bob Fisher, Journalist, broadcaster and winner of many national and international sailing championships "The most significant scientific thinking about sailboat racing to come along in three decades. A brilliant and important book for serious racing sailors."--Ed Adams, US Sailing Team Coach; national, North American, and world champion sailor "Bethwaite's grasp of the entire spectrum of sailing speed is unique and formidable."--Gerry Hoyt, Yacht designer, sailing speed innovator
