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 sea breeze
The land breeze
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.
