This Second edition contains new chapters on Racing near the Shore, Offwind Starts, Yacht Tactics, Racing with Electronics, Match Racing and Team Racing. Tactics is part of the Sail to Win series -- books by world--class sailors and sailing coaches which take a fresh look at the complex subject of racing.
