Book Description:

No other recreation combines so many elements--speed, tactics, strategy, timing, execution--and penalizes a failure in any one of these so brutally as sailboat racing. Around the Buoys is a uniquely holistic guide for beginning and intermediate racers who are mixed in the bottom or middle of the fleet. The first start-to-finish book for small-boat racers in 10 years, it dissects all the elements, then puts them together to show how they interrelate. With the help of numerous diagrams, readers will also learn to recognize when they are threatened on the race course, and when they must move to realize a potential advantage. Comprehensive yet nonintimidating.
