Quatrième de couverture

In a competitive sailing career spanning more than four decades, Gary Jobson has won just about every significant championship. Along the way he has competed against and with the masters of modern competitive sailing--studying, adopting, and adapting their most successful tactics, habits, and techniques. From these ingredients and his own vast experience he has molded and perfected a system that will propel you to the top of the fleet.

In Championship Sailing you'll learn how to win in local, national, and international fleets, whether they are one-design or handicap, high-performance dinghies or big keelboats.

Drawing from his personal experiences in hundreds of dramatic races, Gary shows you how to prepare like a champion, impose order in chaotic situations, recover from mistakes or bad luck, and use both your failures and your successes to become a better sailor.

He guides you through the steps of organizing, training, and leading a first-rate crew; establishing a tactical team and defining their duties; and coping with the emotional highs and lows of a hotly contested race. You'll learn how to examine and analyze the racecourse, read the wind, and choose the best side of the course. And you'll master the finer points of fast starts, upwind and downwind tactics, rounding windward and leeward marks, passing, and maximizing your speed with rig tuning, sail shape, sail trim, and steering.

Complete with in-depth discussions on the best practice methods, the psychology of winning, and so much more, Championship Sailing is the absolutely indispensable guide for anyone who wants to win sailboat races at any level.

Gary Jobson has won ten national one-design sailing titles, the America's Cup, and innumerable ocean races. In 1999 he received the U.S. Sailing Association's most prestigious award, the Nathanael G. Herreshoff Trophy. In 2003 Gary was inducted into the America's Cup Hall of Fame. He is an editor at large for Cruising World and Sailing World and has been ESPN's sailing commentator since 1985.

"A must-read for those who aspire to win sailboat races at any level."--Tom Whidden, CEO of North Marine Group, three-time America's Cup winner

Winning a sailboat race--any sailboat race--is the final step in a process begun weeks, months, perhaps even years before. It involves strategic insight, tactical savvy, and a boat- and sail-handling virtuosity that can only come from many hours of carefully structured practice. In Gary Jobson's Championship Sailing, one of the most successful sailboat racers in history shares more than 40 years of racing and sailboat expertise at the highest levels of competition.

Introducing a proven system developed, fine-tuned, and perfected over more than four decades of sailboat racing, Gary Jobson outlines the skills, reflexes, and instincts you need to become a true champion as he imparts his secrets for:

  • Organizing, training, and leading a crew
  • Reading the wind and choosing the best side of the course
  • Simplifying sail trim and rig tuning
  • Improving boatspeed
  • Tacking, jibing, and maneuvering for advantage
  • Winning starts and leapfrogging boats at the finish
  • Regaining lost ground
  • Practicing alone, in pairs, and with a fleet

Whether you're racing in one-design or handicap fleets, in high-performance dinghies or big keelboats, Championship Sailing will propel you to the front of the fleet.

Solid Advice from a Respected Racer 1 septembre 2005
Par G. M. Cowan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Jobson's book is great reading for the sailboat racing enthusiast, whether a beginner, or someone refreshing their skills.

Jobson does a great job organizing the content of the book. Readers can turn to any chapter that piques their interest to find useful information. Or, they can read it cover-to-cover. It's also well written with technical explanations simplified and easy to understand.

Racing tactics and sail trim were my favorites. The book helped provide consensus on what's right while on the water in the grip of a race.

Worst sailing book ever 13 décembre 2007
Par Kenneth M. Lury - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Firstly, I greatly respect the personal and professional achievements of the author. I am at best a mediocre racer. I have been sailing for more than 30 years and have read everything I can get my hands on re the sport. I read every one of these multiple times and always got something new from them.

This book is worthless. Organization is random. Sidebars are mostly irrelevant digressions and the photos with captions have nothing to do with the text. I don't think I learned a single thing from this book except that I should "will" my boat to go faster. Sorry, I also learned that sitting on the rail is a great opportunity to discuss philosophy, family problems or just Zen out.

The advice from this book can be summed up by " to win, sail fast and make few mistakes" I will give this book to anyone who pays shipping.

Buy the Tactics and Trim duo by Gladstone. Infinitely more readable and packed with information on every page.

A Great Guide for Intermediate and Advanced Racers 18 février 2006
Par Mark L. Corson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Gary Jobson's "Championship Sailing" is a very useful text for skippers and crew wishing to improve their racing results. This is not a "Racing for Dummies" book. I am not sure this would be easy to understand book if the reader is a novice racer. My sense is that Gary assumes the reader already knows the rules, knows how to sail, and has participated in at least some races.

The book has useful tactical advice. For example Chapter 4, Strategy at the Start, provides a wealth of useful advice on starting tactics written in a clear style with easy to follow diagrams. There is a lot to this book. It is wide in scope but also deep in its treatment of the topics. It is well-organized and engaging.

Gary's book is suitiable for a wide racing audience, including those who race in one-design or handicap fleets. His advice applies to dingy racers, maxi racers, and everyone in-between. However I sense that his examples tend to be slightly more applicable to one-design racers than handicap fleet racers, like myself. That is not a criticism, just a perception. This is a book you study and refer back to, not just read through once. this would be an excellent text book for a racing training program. The book is a gift at only $25 a copy.

Packed with useful information 17 janvier 2007
Par Thomas Mager - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm new to sailboat racing, having finished my first season of racing on my new boat last year. And I didn't do nearly as well as I should have given my boat. I immediately identified from every chapter things I was doing wrong, at the starts, trimming sails, communication on the boat, and in how I was organizing the crew. I marked specific pages with sticky notes that I especially wanted to refer back to and by the time I was done with the book I must have marked 40 pages.

The book has tons of useful technical information on starts, sail trim, etc. written in a way that is easy to understand. The shaded summaries at the end of many of the sections is helpful as well. But Gary Jobson also goes into how important attitude and practice are to successful sailboat racing. This book could just as easily be an effective business management book (but much more fun to read).

I can't wait to try to apply what I've learned from this book to the upcoming racing season.

One of the best I've read 23 novembre 2007
Par Michael R. Pearson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I've been racing sailboats off and on for about 30 years and read numerous books. This is the best compilation of wisdom I have read. There is a pearl in almost every paragraph. It is not for the novice, however, because you often need some background to understand the pearls. It covers virtually every aspect of getting around the race course and doing well. I race a J105 amd am buying one of these for each member of my crew. It is short enough that you don't have to spend a lot of time reading it and has enough information that the entire crew can have it as a reference. Everyone can be on the same page, so to speak.
