The crew of a racing yacht is as important as the helsman. Indeed, if you master the techniques in this book you should be able to take your pick of boats and helmsmen.

Winning begins in the mind, and Andy Hemmings first shows you how to set realistic goals and get your attitude right. He then demonstrates how to set up the boat so you can work it efficiently, and how to get it fit for the job. The bulk of the book covers the technical aspects of crewing, with each maneuver examined in detail and explained in words and photosequences. Finally Andy looks at the crew's responsibilities in a race and when sailing a series.
