Based on 25 years of research and Olympic coaching, Higher Performance Sailing reinvents the strategies of sailboat racing. It presents revolutionary explanations of wind prediction, and boat design, a fundamental rethinking of how to sail a boat fastﾗliterally faster than the wind. Bethwaite's theories boosted the average speed of the highest-performance sailboats from two-thirds the wind speed or faster. Bethwaite is Australia's most successful Olympic coach, and his family includes three Olympic sailing champions and three world champions. This book will radically impact on the way sailboats are raced and the way they are sailed. 512 Pages.
