Success in any yacht race is highly dependent on the ability of the crew to perform the required boat-handling manoeuvres with speed and accuracy. This book explains the evolution of just about any situation that is likely to be encountered during a race at sea. Each scenario is presented via an overview of the sequence of the actions that should be taken and their objectives. Photographs and illustrations clarify what are often complex situations.

The position of every crew member, from bowman to helmsman, is examined and the area of responsibility for each clearly laid out. Desirable physical and mental attributes are discussed along with practical advice on improvements to technique.

Other chapters cover watch-keeping systems, heavy weather, sail trim and set-up for racing. The book is suitable for sailors of all ages and levels of experience wishing to understand the complexities of creating and being part of an offshore race-winning team.
