SAIL TO THE LIMIT.
Sailing has moved on from the days when flair was all you needed to win an international championship. Today it's really tough out there, and you need to reach the peak of your mental and physical potential if you are to be successful. This book shows you how.
Part 1 and 2 describe the psychological strategies that world-class sailors use in training and competition. They are liberally illustrated with examples contributed by top sailors who use the techniques - and find them essential.
Part 3 focuses on physical fitness, a topic which many sailors neglect at their peril. It is based on a non-technical and very practical approach, and is comprehensively illustrated with action photographs.
Alan Beggs is a psychologist with wide experience at all levels of sporting endeavour. He is the RYA Honorary Sport Psychologist, and has worked with many of Britain's best - known Olympic and international sailors.
John Derbyshire, a former PE teacher, achieved international success as a sailor before he became an RYA Olympic coach, with responsibility for fitness.
John Whitmore has had a long and distinguished career as a racing driver and as a tennis and ski coach, and has taught many performers to master the mental demands of sport at the highest level.
