About the Author:

Peter Nielsen was Assistant Editor of Yachting Monthly for ten years and is now Editor of Sail magazine, America's leading magazine for cruising and racing sailors. As part of Yachting Monthly's boat test team he has sailed and raced yachts of all sizes and types in many different parts of the world, and has taken part in several long distance ocean races. Asked to define his sailing he says he's 'a cruiser who turns into a racer whenever there's another boat in the vicinity'.
