This book is intended as a guide for people who have already learned to sail and would like to go a step further and start racing.
Many people catch the ‘bug’ after their fi rst race, and it remains with them for the rest of their lives. Why is this? There are those who are naturally competitive and always want to test their skill against others. Some people are less competitive but enjoy racing because it offers the best opportunity to get the best out of their boats. There is nothing like a few races to show you just how well or badly you are sailing!
You will probably be itching to enter a race before you have read to the end of this book, so we have laid out the fi rst four chapters to give you enough knowledge to take part in a race with some degree of confi dence. The remainder of the book is designed to help you improve your performance, and a glossary of terms used in racing is included at the end.
Many successful skippers start their racing careers by crewing with more experienced helms. It can be an advantage to get the feel for racing before you start out on your own, but it’s by no means essential. You may learn faster by fi nding your own way, and this book will help you do just that.
We hope you enjoy your racing as much as we have done, and continue to do. It will give you an absorbing hobby for life. Good sailing!
