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.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 7¾".

Portugal by Martha De La Cal (£7.50)Publisher: Collins — 1988Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0004109732]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “In spite of its relatively small size, Portugal could be several different countries in one. It has a popular and attractive coast, an undiscovered, sparsely populated hinterland and modern European cities that contrast with the many typically Portuguese and medieval towns. In this comprehensive and practical guide, Martha de la Cal, who has lived and worked in Portugal for many years, gives a real insider’s view of the country and its people.

Contents include

• A fascinating and vivid account of Portugal’s history, art and architecture and also a revealing look at Portugal today.

• The gazetteer covers the whole country in detail and in doing so opens up such previously ignored areas as the beautiful and mountainous north and the historic central region of Estremadura.

• Personal recommendations throughout for hotels, including pousadas, to suit all budgets and for restaurants that serve local and regional specialities and authentic Portuguese food.

• Useful advice on such matters as language, customs and courtesies, transport, shopping and handicrafts, plus many more.”
