A “little book of” racing. Hot tips from two experienced racers on how to win!
Neal McDonald and Mark Chisnell have been racing with and against each other for longer than either cares to remember. They have progressed from International 420 dinghies in the RYA’s Youth Squad, to a combined total of twenty five years as professional racing sailors, competing in every major event (and winning several). They have competed in dinghies – the Olympics, World Championships in 18 foot Skiffs, International 14s, Tornados, International 470s; and in yachts – the Whitbread Race, America’s Cup, and the Admiral’s Cup.
These are the lessons they have learnt – 180 rules that will cut down the simple expensive mistakes in preparation and racing, and immediately improve your fleet position. Everyone makes mistakes but the winner makes the least. This book is the answer – follow the rules and win!
