Product Description

About the Author

Kim Furniss and Sarah Powell are a formidable team: they have won World, European and National titles and are dynamite in any class of catamaran. Trained as a boatbuilder, Kim Furniss still builds and repairs boats. His success in catamarans mean he is in great demand for boat development and race coaching. Like many successful crews, Sarah Powell is a helmsman in her own right,. In this book she shows that crewing is a vital skill - at least as important as helming.

Format: Paperback
The authors tries to cover to much in one small book. Consequently you dont have much to learn from this book unless you just have started sailing catamarans. But it is not a good book for beginners either.

By A Customer on 1 Jan. 2005
Format: Paperback
This book proved helpful in many ways. First of all it focuses on trapezing, assembly and theory. Then in the latter parts it focuses on pushing the boat to its limit. This is done through setting your rig for all conditions and good race tactics. All in all, this is a good book. It loses a star for its vagueness. It is quite small. Good Book Though!!!!!!

This book is not overly complicated but gives a quick and easy lesson in catamaran sailing. It reads easily, and can be read cover to cover in one night.
