Riassunto: This has, for 20 years, been the definitive book on wind for racing sailors worldwide.

Contains easy-to-understand conceptual models of wind behaviour. So that wherever you are it trains you to recognise what the wind is doing and why. The 3rd edition has:

  1. Detailed wind analysis of the world?s most popular venues.
  2. 40% of the book rewritten.
  3. Inclusion of sailor & meteorologist Fiona Campbell as co-author.

Dal retro di copertina: This book is gold dust for sailors.

Will there be a sea breeze today?

Will one side of the course have better wind?

Will the wind shift during the race?

For nearly 20 years Wind Strategy has given sailors the answer to these questions and many more. It gives a set of basic principles so that you can predict the wind's behaviour virtually anywhere in the world. It shows how the wind will shift and bend over the relatively small area of the racecourse, and how it is modified by:

  • The sea breeze
  • The land breeze
  • Gusts
  • Clouds
  • Cliffs
  • Other boats
  • Islands
  • The shore
  • Currents
  • Water temperature. 

The book also gives specific wind advice for over 20 popular venues, from the Solent to Sydney.

In short, Wind Strategy gives you the "local knowledge" you need to become a winner.

Recommended for all racing sailors.
