From the Back Cover:

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.

  • Set goals for confidence-building and competition
  • Learn effective self - talk and straight thinking
  • Make stress work for you, not against you
  • Harness the power of visualisation
  • Learn to stay focused so you can cope with distractions
  • Build and maintain on-the-boat relationships that really work

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.

  • Plan your own fitness programme
  • Aerobic and anaerobic fitness - get the balance right
  • Recognise the value of rest and recovery in a fitness programme
  • Learn how to train on the water, in the gym, and on simulators
  • Understand nutrition, the most neglected topic in training and competition
