The vast majority of people who race sailboats rarely travel to Opens or championships. Their sailing is defined by constaints in all directions, often including their own ambition.
But virtually every sailing book is aimed either at complete beginners or making us into champions – a journey most of us will never even start.
My ambition is to fix this neglect – this is a guide to get more satisfaction and a better outcome from your sailing time – with ways and means that are realistic and will work for you. It won’t having you scaring our Olympic heroes of course, but it will help you get more from that precious time on the water
