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).


'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)
