Written by expert Mark Rushall, one of the sport’s top tacticians and coaches (with a little help from Ryan Wriggleback), the new eBook is full of videos and animations and suggestions for winning strategies for a wide variety of courses and conditions.
The eBook discusses strategy building and looks at all parts of the race in detail, recommending specific tactics for each. You can now literally carry tactics in your pocket and access the wealth of knowledge at a touch of a button.
Easy to follow tips
No other sport requires the combination of so many elements as sail racing; preparation, strategy, speed, tuning and most importantly tactics. The RYA Tactics eBook is packed with easy to follow diagrams, colour photographs and those all-important coaches’ tips.
It breaks down the race to tell you exactly what to think about, how and when to do it, and most importantly, why you should be doing it! It takes you logically and holistically through each section. If you take your racing seriously you cannot be without this book.
“Ever since we first launched our first eBook, we’ve been having requests for us to turn our attention to RYA Tactics so for us this feels a little like the realisation of a dream.
“The wealth of knowledge in Mark’s book is such that you’ll often find yourself covering the content several times, thinking about it and reading it again to make it sink in”, commented RYA Publications Manager Steen Ingerslev.
“This eBook, with animations of what he’s explaining, takes this process to a whole new level and you’ll find this new format with instantly accessible clips on tactical situations utterly invaluable and indispensable”, Steen concluded.
The RYA Tactics eBook costs £15.49 (RRP) and is available to buy through the RYA Books app which you can download for free from iTunes. Anyone who purchases this eBook will receive a free update (of the current edition) should there be any changes following the release of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2013 – 2016.
