商品説明

This book captures the essence of two separate and different sailing “careers.” The author and his collaborator have been friends since their teens when they rented and sailed together open cockpit day sailors in South Florida. Later, Rosen became an academic and lived near a sizeable lake in New York State, with access to Lake Ontario. Greenberg became a prominent cardiac surgeon who settled in Miami, very close to Biscayne Bay. There he had easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Keys. As an industrial-organizational psychologist, Rosen’s professional focus was on task group dynamics and their leadership in formal work settings. He taught courses and workshops on these subjects many times, and conducted related empirical research. Greenberg, as a cardiac surgeon, assembled, trained, and led many medical teams to perform heart operations in hospitals. Both have developed many teams, and each has purchased, cruised, and raced several cruiser size sailing yachts. “Cruiser size” is defined as boats whose length ranges from twenty-four feet to forty plus, and whose cabin includes most of the comforts of home, e.g., marine toilet, kitchen, bunks for sleeping, shower and more. Clearly these men have two major career components in common - practical knowledge of team development, and extensive experience with, and love of sailing and racing. Here they are, now retired, getting together in The Upside-Down Spinnaker, sharing with readers their several decades of accumulated knowledge and experiences. The eleven-chapter book begins with an account of how they got into sailing, and mistakes they made in the process. It then describes some cruising experiences, ranging from “joyful” to “truly ugly,” in three chapters. These chapters are followed by one on how to choose the “right” boat. This chapter poses several thought questions for aspiring purchasers (and dreamers) to explore before making important decisions. Relatedly, they have included a chapter that describes various experiences they and others have had with design shortcomings, manufacturing mistakes, and dealer errors. Knowledge of such mistakes can be very helpful to prospective buyers, and to individuals planning a charter. Chapter Seven offers observations and suggestions about choosing and preparing guests one might consider as possible shipmates for a long cruise. This chapter leads into racing. Both men believe, based on their respective experiences, that the human element of racing is crucial. Accordingly, the book presents a race team development model. This is followed by two chapters describing and analyzing more than thirty race crew mistakes. Both men believe that race crews, including the Skipper, making the fewest mistakes will win more prizes than others. The book includes numerous photos and several amusing cartoons. While the text is non-technical, a Glossary is included for readers having limited sailing experience.
