Training exercises for each element of a sailing race, for coaches and for sailors without a coach.
This book contains training exercises for each element of a sailing race. As well as describing and illustrating the exercise, it tells you what skills you are trying to improve, why and how to make the exercise harder or easier.
The book will enable coaches to deliver better, more focussed, training sessions, but it will also help sailors who don’t have the benefit of a coach to practise and improve their sailing skills. The exercises are marked as to whether they are suitable for solo boats, groups of boats or those with a coach boat.
