"Little Blue Book of Sailing Secrets"

Knowledge and secrets every sailor needs, from one of the world's most respected sailors.

Peter Isler, two-time America's Cup winner, has sailed in and won hundreds of races over the last forty years. In that time, he has acquired a vast array of knowledge about sailing techniques and tactics, not to mention a boatload or two of entertaining stories along the way. In this book, he brings them all together into a single guide to help you make the most of your time on the water, whether you're going for a leisurely sail with friends or competing to win.

Soon to be a classic compilation of tips, lessons, and entertaining stories, Isler shares his extensive knowledge and recounts some of the highlights of his life as a professional sailor.

Features:
  • A wide range of compelling and invaluable lessons, including understanding the inner game, reading the wind, navigating, steering in waves, leading a team, preparing your boat (and yourself), how to be the ultimate crew, and more
  • Sailing wisdom from Isler's time on the water with and against the world's best sailors - from America's Cup legends Dennis Conner and Ted Turner to three-time Olympic gold medalist Ben Ainslie and sailing guru Buddy Melges
  • Tips on staying out of trouble and learning from your mistakes, - plus jury rigging skills, reacting to fast-changing conditions, and fending off harmful head games
