About the Author

Ian Nicolson has been a yacht designer for over 50 years, following the example of his great grandfather who was closely involved in the design of the Cutty Sark. The younger Nicolson built a 30ft sloop in Canada and sailed it back to Britain single-handed, celebrating his 25th birthday at sea. He lectures at two universities and has probably written more technical books and articles than anyone. He also races the family Sigma 33 and has been on various race-winning boats since 1945.
