RYA Tactics is the go-to handbook for all sailors and coaches interested in improving their performance on the race course.
Written by sailing tactics specialist Mark Rushall, it is based on his many years of successful dinghy and keelboat racing, and his career as an Olympic sailing coach.
Packed with easy-to-digest advice and information, it has clear diagrams and explanations and features excellent photography throughout to demonstrate racing in action. RYA Tactics breaks down the myths around racing tactics and provides you with winning strategies for a wide range of race courses and weather conditions.
Written from the perspective of both coach and sailor, RYA Tactics takes you logically and holistically through each aspect of a sailing race. Shedding new light on mastering race tactics, it has three easy-to-follow sections:
- Setting the scene
- Before the start
- The race
The third edition features new chapters that include cutting-edge advice on analysing weather conditions, club racing, positioning as a strategy, and tactics in fast boats. It also discusses strategy building and looks at all parts of the race in detail, recommending specific tactics for each stage.
Whether you’re looking to understand wind shifts better, start fast, use a race compass, or get round the marks first, this book will get you there.
