Yacht Racing - A Textbook of the Sport - Giving a Complete Exposition of the Revised Rules of Racing to 1933

By B Heckstall Smith
This vintage textbook is a complete description of the revised rules of racing as amended and re-adopted by the International Yacht Racing Union conference held in London, November, 1946. With 149 diagrams and detailed explanations, this volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in historical yacht racing, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: Instruction: Racing Rules Revised, First Principles of Steering a Yacht to Windward, Sailing a Yacht Off the Wind, Rule of the Road in Yacht Racing Made Simple for the Beginner, Y. R. A. Rules on management of Races, Y. R. A. Sailing Rules, The Right of Way, Right of Way when Meeting, Crossing and Converging, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on yachting and boating."
