"This book is lavishly illustrated with glorious full colour pics and illustrations, so understanding is very easy." (Sailing) "This latest version brings it right up to date with the latest developments in the class using contributions from current top sailors in the fleet... Even though I've been in the class for almost ten years it contained some clever tips that I didn't know about." (Gybe Magazine) "the book has been completely overhauled in response to the recently released Mk2 standard sails and the new composite top section." (Yachts & Yachting)
