This book reveals the winning ways of a major sailing champion, Greg Fisher.

Greg's overall message: boat speed is paramount. Boat speed comes from getting the boat in balance. Tactically he favors the conservative approach; do what most often succeeds.

This book is about Greg Fisher and how 'regular guys' can move up in the fleet. The book represents the experience of Coach-TCA, the intermediate level racing course offered during Thistle Midwinters in St. Petersburg by Greg Fisher and Tom Hubbell supported by a cast of leading competitor-coaches. Greg has won major regattas in many classes including Flying Scot, Thistle, Lightning, J/22, Snipe, Highlander, MC Scow, and Y-Flyer.

Review:

SAILBOAT RACING WITH GREG FISHER: A ONE-DESIGN DISCOURSE By Chris Pastore

You've compiled a list of racing questions but don't have the nerve to approach and ply your local rock star. Don t worry, Tom Hubbell sat down with one-design guru and North sailmaker Greg Fisher and broached the conversation for you in 'Sailboat Racing with Greg Fisher.'

'We wanted a course that would focus on the most important skills in racing, a sort of Boat Racing for Ordinary Mortals,' says Hubbell in the book's introduction. 'Greg provided the expertise and credibility. I provided my perspective as an ordinary mortal.'

With 56 instructional photographs and easy-to-read bullet-point lists, 'Sailboat Racing with Greg Fisher' gives its readers the opportunity to be a fly on the wall during a tell-all chat with one of the masters. --Sailing World
