The unique fun of catamaran sailing is in the power and acceleration - from my first sail on a cat, I knew this was the boat for me.

Catamarans are the fastest of all conventional sailing craft and among the most thrilling. They are different from monohulls and however good you are in a sailing dinghy you will find you have new skills to learn when you transfer to a cat.

Whatever your previous experience, this book will have you fizzing over the water in no time. It starts right at the beginning with a simple explanation of how the wind and sails work, then rapidly propels you forward to your first sail and on to your first race.

The final section opens up a new world of high-performance skills: gennaker sailing, twin-wire trapezing and tuning a powerful racing rig.

About the Author:

Brian Phipps has been involved in manufacturing, sailing and racing catamarans since 1978.  He also runs the Windsport Cat Clinics: specialist sailing schools that provide an ideal introduction to the practical business of catamaran sailing (and a development programme thereafter).

Review:

'For anyone new to day cat sailing, this book will most definitely assist as it covers the basics, then skills development, racing and finally gennickers and twin-trapezing. It's easy to follow, is well illustrated and has many sidebars to further explain specifics.' (Sailing)
