Synopsis: Here is a detailed study of the motive forces of a yacht written in clear and accessible terms. The author has the rare gift of enabling his readers to relate the nautical phenomena with which they are so familiar to a scientific explanation of how and why these occur. The first part covers downwind sailing, upwind sailing, sails, the hull, and the dynamic motion of a yacht. Part Two is devoted to more mathematical explanations of the same phenomena for those requiring a more scientific approach.

About the Author: After five years of working in medical physics in the U.S., Ross Garrett returned to New Zealand to teach and research nuclear physics, which he combined with racing small catamarans and trailer sailers. The Symmetry of Sailing is based on a series of lectures given to amateur sailors at the University of Auckland.
