Ben Ainslie The Laser Campaign Manual
A highly illustrated book. Ben is of course an Olympic Gold Medallist in the Laser class, and has been World, European and National champion. He has some top secrets to share and he knows his onions. He explains how to win in this, the most competitive class. Beautifully illustrated with colour photo sequences of Ainslie in action.
Sir Ben Ainslie won his first two Olympic medals (silver, then gold) in the Laser Class. After winning the gold medal he wrote down the secrets that won him that medal in this book. This new edition is published to mark the 20th anniversary of that first of his four Olympic gold medals. It features a brand-new introduction by Ben reflecting on his victory 20 years ago.
It is the only how-to book that the world’s most successful Olympic sailor has written and so, while he and the Laser class have moved on, this is the only place where you can gain access to Ben’s skills and thought process. It is an invaluable guide on how to perform at the top of the Laser class or, indeed, any single-handed sailing dinghy.
From psychology, goal setting and getting the boat right to speed, fitness and training – this book illustrates how to win a championship. Brimming with photographs, it is a colourful, detailed account of how to dominate in your fleet.
An online video including footage of him demonstrating every manoeuvre from starting, tacking upwind to downwind technique is also available.
