Sailing Strategy is considered a racing classic. Long out of print, it has champions who have been petitioning hard for its reissue. It is considered the best book ever written on the subject, and presents in detail techniques which are still completely relevant and applicable today. The author provides a very thorough analysis and explanation of how to read the wind and currents in all conditions on a racecourse, and explains how a good knowledge and understanding of their vagaries by the racer can be used advantageously to enhance boat performance on the racecourse, and carry both helm and crew further up the fleet. For any racer wanting an 'edge' (as any competitive sailor will always be aiming for) the reissue of this long out of print gem will be a godsend. A modern classic and an ideal companion to the recently reissued Start to Win, Sailing Strategy also has a new Foreword by Bob Fisher, Yachting Correspondent for The Guardian, and columnist for Yachts and Yachting. The reissue of this classic will be welcomed by novice and experienced racers alike.

The vast majority of sailing yacht scenarios comprise a couple sailing the boat together, and needing to carry out all manoeuvres and activities themselves with no help from a back-up crew. Their boat handling, navigation, sail handling, anchoring and mooring skills all have to be carried out both efficiently and effectively, preferably with the minimum of physical effort (to conserve energy). But most sailing technique books assume a crew of 3 or 4, all willing to lend a hand. This book is therefore a first, addressing the most common sailing scenarios that anyone cruising will have to deal with, and providing clever, original, highly effective (and most importantly successfully tried and tested by the author) techniques and solutions for dealing with the huge variety of essential operations on a boat – from sail setting and reefing, to picking up mooring buoys in a variety of wind and tide situations, anchoring, berthing and leaving a pontoon shorthanded, picking up a man overboard, sailing in fog and heavy weather – and even going up the mast. This book will be a godsend to anyone sailing single or shorthanded – including couples with young children who need to be supervised by one parent whilst the other runs the boat. Organised into techniques for different cruising scenarios, the book features step by step sequential photos showing exactly how to approach each situation and carry out the task in hand.

Is there a Destiny? Does Fate impose a limit? What Barrier stands between man and the creation of life? Since the legendary failure of the ill-fated Frankenstein, man has tried time and time again to pass those limits. He has created androids, clumsy robots of flesh and blood. He has made men of metal and servants of plastic, with wheels for limbs and magnetic tapes for voices. Man has made things by cross breeding the animal kingdom and destroying Nature's intentions...but man has never yet made man. Or has he? Forbisher thought that he had the answer. It wasn't a clumsy Synthetic. It wasn't an Android, or a Robot, it was a real flesh and blood human being. The beautiful woman in his arms was the product of a laboratory experiment, not the result of a natural biological process. But how could he prove it?
