KIRKUS REVIEW

The emphasis is on boats with the same set of specifications and measurements that make them similar to sister sailing boats, that call upon the skipper's skill and not on extra refinements, and that race on an even basis with no handicaps, and there is guidance here for the newcomer as well as the more practised sailor. A section describes the one-design classes, offers information about types to choose from -- racing, racer-day sailers, racer-cruisers, and the associations available for procedures and memberships. Included are details of rig, materials and hulls in used and new boat purchases. Rules of racing, courses and scoring for one-design, frostbite, team, distance, and handicap, lists with requirements, builders, price, activity, etc., of the classes in one-design racing, racing-cruising, and catamarans, together with a bibliography and an index of one-design classes complete this for a growing, enthusiastic sports group.
