Samenvatting

The unique fun of catamaran sailing is in the power and acceleration -- from my first sail on a cat, I knew this was the boat for me. Catamarans are the fastest of all conventional sailing craft and among the most thrilling. They are different from monohulls and however good you are in a sailing dinghy you will find you have new skills to learn when you transfer to a cat. Whatever your previous experience, this book will have you fizzing over the water in no time. It starts right at the beginning with a simple explanation of how the wind and sails work, then rapidly propels you forward to your first sail and on to your first race. The final section opens up a new world of high--performance skills: gennaker sailing, twin--wire trapezing and tuning a powerful racing rig.

Recensie(s)

An indispensable, solid foundation which takes you from your first trip on board a cat to competing at a serious level... This tremendous book presents both Tom and Brian's enormous knowledge of catamaran sailing, and the industry as a whole, as well as conveying their passion for and dedication to the sport. If you want to enjoy catamaran sailing, and improve your skills, I thoroughly recommend this book. (Santiago Lange, catamaran gold medallist). the best of all currently available (catamaran book) titles internationally. (Delius Klasing). The book is liberally illustrated with full colour diagrams and pictures. There is not a single page that does not have at least one pic - and generally more... If you are arrogant enough to think that you know everything about catamaran sailing, then this book is NOT for you. But for those willing to open their minds and learn more, their new-found knowledge will see them rapidly rising up the leader board and quickly challenging the arrogant ones. (Sailing, May 2017)
