No other recreation combines so many elements--speed, tactics, strategy, timing, execution--and penalizes a failure in any one of these so brutally as sailboat racing. Successful racing depends on putting all elements together, and the winning mix changes with each new leg of the race.Around the Buoys looks at the racecourse leg by leg, buoy rounding by buoy rounding, gathering together the relevant strategic, tactical, boatspeed, and rule considerations where they apply, and showing how they interrelate.
