read all about it

First time around it was a story that captivated the sailing world. So why not tell it again? The battle in Weymouth Bay between Jonas Høgh-Christensen, Ben Ainslie and 22 other Finn sailors in August was one of the most closely followed sailing regattas of all time. It became one of the defining moments of the 2012 Olympic Games and rewrote the sailing history books as Ainslie won the gold medal to become the most successful Olympic sailor of all time.

Now the story of these epic encounters has been retold in a great little book from the Finn class. Combining all the stories from the Games together with all the interview material and previews, and also the post regatta interviews with the medalists, this is the compete a story of the events in Weymouth this August.

For Finn aficionados this book is 64 pages of joy, with great photos and detailed analysis of the 24 Finn heroes who battled over 11 races on Weymouth Bay. For everyone else it is a unique account of the struggle to achieve perfection in a demanding boat, in demanding conditions, and in the most demanding arena possible. This unique book tells the unique story from start to finish. It was nothing short of history in the making.

The book is only available through Amazon.com and the European Amazon sites  (Amazon.co.ukAmazon.deAmazon.frAmazon.es, Amazon.it). More here. – Robert Deaves
