Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Board sailing has made such rapid strides as a popular sport that in 1980 a sail board class was added to the Olympic Games. Now boards are raced wherever there is a suitable stretch of water and this highly illustrated book shows how to enjoy the competition. The author first discusses the best sort of board and sail for racing together with hints and tips on the equipment. He follows this up with board sailing techniques especially suitable for racing. Then comes the race itself with particular emphasis on the wind conditions to which board sailors are vulnerable. Racing rules, with minor variations for boards as compared with boats, are explained. All these topics are given close attention with precise line drawings and appealing photographs. The final chapter deals with physical training for board racing.”
