This book dissects sailing into its individu al skills, then gives drills to help improve each one. Pract ice is the fastest way to move up the learning curve: the mo re you practice the luckier you will get. '
The founders of Rick Whitea s Seminars bring a wealth of monohull and multihull sailing experience to their teaching to their books. This is Rick Whitea s fourth book on sailboat racing and the third which he and wife Mary Wells have produced as a team. Both Rick and Mary have sailed a wide range of boats, from prams to Corsair trimarans, from Lasers and Sunfish to PHRF boats. Since 1989 they have been travelling around the country putting on race--training seminars for small boats. They are now in the process of establishing a sailing center in the Florida Keys. Rick is working on a series of teaching videotapes using video taken during their many seminars. And they have now established "Ricka s Place", on the water in the Florida Keys, where sailors can go for rest, relaxation and sailing all year round.
