Stuart Walker

The Doctor

**Walker has won the Soling **world championship and was the first American to win the International 14's Prince of Wales Trophy, but he's best known as one of sailing's most prolific authors with nine books and a 40-year tenure as a Sailing World columnist. His sage advice on tactics, strategy, and the mindset needed to win races transcends any class boundaries, applying equally to 80-foot maxis or 9-foot dinghies.

Walker's book, "The Psychology of Winning" has been called the definitive book on sports psychology, and his series titled "The Sailor's Wind," detailed examinations of several key sailing spots, has helped many an out-of-towner quickly grasp local knowledge tactics.
