'Mark Chisnell has been a beacon of clarity in his B&G blog coverage of the Volvo Ocean Race, and his racing tactics book published in 2012 could offer you the same insight to improve your racing performance.' (Yachts & Yachting, January 2015) 'This is a book for all keelboat owners, whether racing or cruising. On-board instruments present modern sailors with a wealth of information such as: apparent and true wind speed; boat speed; speed over the ground (SOG) and velocity made good (VMG). And these are just a few functions. With all the info available it's really a case of understanding what they all mean, and how to use them. Chisnell answers these questions and turns on-board racing information into results with an expert guide on how to turn the theory into practice. Simply by mastering your instruments you can make the right calls every time and know for certain when to tack, which shift to look out for and how the tide can work with or against you. Plus it's illustrated with colour diagrams throughout. As Chisnell says: 'the information is at your fingertips - now turn that knowledge into racing success.' (Sailing magazine, Feb 2016)
