Издание на английском языке
I’m going to assume that you’re already familiar with the sport of sailing, and that you’ve done a bit of racing too. This book is not aimed at the novice, although it is aimed at sailors who may never have sailed boats with asymmetric spinnakers before. It is hard to write a book that will appeal to all types of asymmetric sailor, but in this book you’ll discover I’ve interviewed a range of experts across a spectrum of sailing boats powered by asymmetric sails.
We’ve got tips on how to get the best out of:
- small dinghies like the RS200 and RS400,
- high performance skiffs such as 49ers and International 14s,
- high performance multihulls such as Tornados and Formula 18 catamarans, an
- sportsboats such as the Melges 24 and SB20.
Even if your particular boat isn’t directly covered in this book, I really hope you get some great tips from some of the experts we’ve gathered together, and that you’ll be able to carry over some of the hot tips into your own asymmetric sailing.
