Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.
Later printing. Illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “This book is designed for all who are interested in the racing of boats, but mainly beginners. It deals with problems and ideas that concern all types of racing yacht, and hence it starts by assuming a competitive boat and crew, which are matters that do not concern us here. Instead, the reader is first given an opportunity to get the feel of a race, and is then encouraged to think about the psychology and strategy of competition, course and weather tactics, the geometry of the race course, and finally, the use of the rules as a basis for tactics.”
