Thanks Paul for your comments, certainly agree with what you have said.

Geoff Waldron recommended “Asymmetric Sailing by Andy Rice”. Only $10 as an e-book. I have certainly picked up some tips from it, particularly from the guy who sails the single hander. Did not even know there were two techniques to gennaker gybing – blow-through vs pull-through!

Was not aware of the no electronic instruments in the class racing rule. Like many, I like gadgets, but have not lashed out for boat electronics. Is a device, such as a Speedpuck, that much of an advantage? As a lake sailor, the conditions are so variable I wonder if they would be all that effective. But interesting for recording top speed and the like.
