134 Upwind vs. Downwind

$6.00 each


ISSUE #: 134
THEME:Upwind vs. Downwind
DATE:May/Jun 2015

CONTENTS: This issue is all about the differences between racing Upwind and Downwind. It's in a slightly new 'comparative analysis' format designed to compare and contrast two aspects of our sport. Issue 134 explains why and how you should have a very different perspective for sailing beats versus runs. It compares strategies for topics such as playing wind shifts, determining the favored side, the value of finding extra pressure, dealing with waves, finding the groove, tacking and jibing, laylines and more.
