This is a book written by someone who genuinely enjoys offshore racing and who has sailed on hundreds of different yachts at all levels and in most types of race. It is intended to help crew members of either sex, and at any age and level of experience. A large part of the book concentrates on actual crew work and manoeuvres but there are also sections on watch systems, victuals, heavy weather, sail trim and setting-up the yacht for racing.

Offshore crewing, whether during a race or while cruising is great fun, but can be physically demanding and takes a high degree of commitment from participants. Racing in particular requires the entire the crew to have a common aim and for every member to put maximum effort into winning. Sailing is sometimes lovely, spinnaker reaching in a flat sea and sunny conditions, or it can be really bloody, as when going to windward in freezing conditions and half a gale - but it is always worth the experience. The sense of personal achievement after finishing a race or passage and knowing that you have contributed as much as possible to the running of the yacht is a great feeling. Most of the preparation and manoeuvres are simple in themselves but it is important to understand what is required and then how to execute each to a high level of perfection. Trying to re¬invent the wheel each time a new situation is encountered is not very efficient and does not win races. One way to learn is to listen to others who just might have been in the same situation before.

I enjoy coaching at all levels and this book is merely an extension of coaching afloat. My ideas evolved as my experience grows; sailing with different people allows me to see differing ways of doing the same things. There is rarely a right' way to do something, it is merely that some methods seem to be generally more efficient than others. I do not pretend that this is a bible for everyone to follow. I shall be happy enough if every reader either learns something new or even just
