Book Description

25 Jun 1992 Sail to Win
Tactics splits up racing into its key decision--making stages, from pre--start to finish. Rodney Pattisson evaluates the option at each stage and shows how to choose the best plan of action. He then details the boat--to--boat tactics needed to carry that plan out -- even in a highly competitive fleet. 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. Each book gives the detailed advice that the competent sailor must have to overcome the "club racer" barrier and compete successfully in international fleets. The emphasis is on practical, effective information presented in a straightforward, highly illustrated manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bases for modernisation 27 Sep 2012
By Ksini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book offers very good overview and describes the different phases in sail racing in easily understandable manner. Pictures are also clear and very usefull for this purpose. The structure is also good and you can easily select the topics you are mostly interested. The downside is that it looks however very much as a product of it's time and re-editing it with more modern e.g. pictures would easily add one more star to the rating
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book. 7 Oct 2008

Rodney Pattison is a living legend. He gives great instructions on sailing, especially from his standpoint as one of the best Flying Dutchman sailors of all time. Worth a read.
