Higher Performance Sailing is Frank Bethwaite’s second book explaining both the theory and the practice of Apparent Wind Sailing (AWS). AWS is an essential ingredient of all sailing but it is a particular feature of the new form of the sport – foiling. Multihull sailors have known about this for years, but for those who have been part of the more traditional side of displacement sailing, it is a revelation. AWS requires different skills and strategies and these are explored in depth in this highly readable and entertaining text.
The cost of the book is US$40.00 plus US$5.00 for postage and handling.
