Summary

Start to Win is Eric Twiname's sailing classic. Out of print for over 20 years, it has nevertheless retained its position as the 
book on simple racing principles. Considered unequalled by its many 
fans, it is the only book that sets out the techniques of sailing in 
such a clear, understandable and straightforward manner.  
 
 
 
 
 
By the same author as The Rules Book, Start to Win 
will be welcomed back by its many followers, and read for the first 
time by many more. With an updated section on the Racing Rules, this 
classic is set to help sailors achieve their racing best for many years 
to come.

    An enthralling book that not only satisfies our fascination for lost wisdom of our ancestors but also indulges the British obsession with the weather.  Probably the best known country saying of them all is 'red sky at night, shepherd's delight'. Wise Words and Country Ways Weather Lore presents us with dozens more similar, but largely now forgotten, words of wisdom that are imbued with a centuries-old understanding of the patterns of British weather, seasonal changes and the behavior of plants and animals around us.  It has highly relevant content for an age where we all feel we have lost touch with the patterns of nature.
