Penguin Books 230349 USA 2002 0140246010 / 9780140246018 Softcover Near Fine Condition Beginning with a gripping account of one of the most decisive naval battles in history-the 1905 battle of Tsushima between the Japanese and Russians-and ending with the sophisticated missile engagements of the Falklands and in the Persian Gulf, naval historian Ronald Spector explores every facet of the past one hundred years of naval warfare. Drawing from more than one hundred diaries, memoirs, letters, and interviews, this is, above all, a masterful narrative of the human side of combat at sea-real stories told from the point of view of the sailors who experienced it. Exhaustively researched and fascinating in detail, At War at Sea is a monumental history of the men, the ships, and the battles fought on the high seas. 464 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Advanced Racing Tactics, Stuart H. Walker
19 Stuart H. Walker Advanced Racing Tactics
Angus & Robertson 240025 Australia 1982 0207142394 / 9780207142390 Softcover Very Good Condition Thomas Price Today far more sailors than ever before have reached a superior level of competitive ability, and the few individuals who remain at the head of the competitive classes year and after year must constantly improve their skills. This book will help the sailor analyze for himself the determinants of tactical success. One of the foremost theoreticians of the art of yacht racing, Stuart H. Walker is also an outstanding practicing racer. For eight years Dr. Walker kept a complete record of the factors that determined the outcome of every race in which he competed. The recommendations he offers in Advanced Racing Tactics are based upon the analysis of these races-the mistakes and the successes. He sets forth basic principles of starting, beating, reaching, and mark rounding that should be practiced every time, and he underlines what mattered, what consistently provided an advantage. The advanced racing skipper, Dr. Walker writes, must look around, examine his own mistakes and successes, record them, review them, remember them. When he recognizes from this own experience the validity of the principles presented here, they will become useful to him. When he has incorporated them into his regular racing patterns, he will have made a five- or ten-year leap forward. 399 pages. Illustrator: Thomas Price. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Nautical::Ships::Boats; Ships & the Sea; Sport::Yachting. ISBN: 0207142394. ISBN/EAN: 9780207142390. Inventory No: 240025. Paperback
