Wind Strategy by David Houghton and Fiona Campbell
Will there be a sea breeze today?
Will one side of the course have better wind?
Will the wind shift during the race?
For nearly 20 years Wind Strategy has given sailors the answers to these questions and many more. It gives a set of principles so that you can predict the wind's behaviour virtually anywhere in the world. It shows how the wind will shift and bend over the relatively small area of the racecourse, and how it is modified by many different factors.
The book also gives specific wind advice for over 20 popular venues, from the Solent to Sydney.
