Wind Strategy is written especially for the racing sailor and shows how to predict the wind over the area of the racecourse, during the race, using simple ‘rules of thumb’ which apply anywhere in the world. It has been the bible since its introduction in 1984, and has been revised in the light of the author’s experience at several Olympic Games, and in the northern and southern hemispheres.
Learn how to predict the sea breeze, how the wind bends as it crosses the coastline and where the strongest winds will be on a racecourse. Plus, how the wind behaves on inland lakes and rivers.
