Synopsis

Whether racing dinghies or yachts, every sailor wants to drive through the fleet and cross the line first. In this groundbreaking book, international racer Fred Imhoff shows how to do just that. By means of on-the-water action shots and detailed commentary about a sailor's tactics, sail trim, helming, crew positioning and psychological attitude, Fred shares the secrets of competitive racing success.



Whether first-time club racer or international America's Cup hotshot, every sailor's goal is to constantly improve and stay one step ahead of the competition. Fred's logical, clinical analyses accompanied by fantastic action shots, including many from the 2012 Olympics, will be a godsend to budding and improving racers alike. From advice on mental preparation, honing your gear, working the weather and analysing the course, to briefing your crew, sussing out the other competitors and analysing your mistakes, this book is full of never-before-discussed gold dust that will be absolutely indispensable to all racers, whatever their age or level.

Fred Imhoff is a successful Olympic racing sailor of international renown. He dominated the Flying Dutchman class for many years, winning European and world titles and has since competed in Dragon keelboats, Quarter-tonners, Half-tonners and the Admiral's Cup. He doesn't believe he was a better helmsman than his competitors - he just thought more about all the aspects that contributed to his success. He lives in the Netherlands.
