What you need to know to work your way up the fleet--from the first start to winning the finish "With Cort and Stearns' enthusiasm for the topic and straightforward advice, it's hard not to read this book without picturing yourself rounding the buoys just ahead of the rest of the fleet." --Soundings Now an established classic, Getting Started in Sailboat Racing is the one racers come back to after the race to see what they might have done better; it is the book captains share with their new crew to make sure all have the foundational knowledge to get the boat moving up to the top of the fleet--and staying there, year after year. Inside you will find a complete course in racing fundamentals, organized in the leg-by-leg nature of a typical sailboat race. This edition includes important post-Olympic rule changes, an entirely new section on racing with asymmetrical spinnakers, scores of helpful illustrations, and an updated listing of boats in the table of popular PHRF boats.
