Magnus Smith’s book review for Yachts and Yachting

I feel genuinely enthused by reading Clive Eplett’s book. It delivers just the right information us tail-enders (and the mid-fleet) need, which other dinghy books have not delivered. Club sailors don’t need rocket science, and it is surprising no-one has written this level of book before.  It is apparent in every sentence that Clive really wants to help you, and knows you need a prod too. The book employs modern understanding of the brain; so you have a chance of applying these ideas, not just reading and forgetting. Clive understands how weak us humans are…as well as the nature of the melee at a club-racing buoy. This material is digestible and actionable, plus the firm instructions on p80 are worth the cover price alone.
