This 224 page book is currently at final proofing stages and we expect to be sending it to the printers by the end of October. It contains more than 1,000 colour and black/white photos and written accounts from countless world champions and Olympic medalists. Contributors include: Paul Elvstrom, Jacques Rogge, Paul Henderson, John Bertrand, Hubert Raudaschl, Hans Fogh, Valentin Mankin, Jochen Schumann, Cam Lewis, Peter Harken, Peter Holmberg, Stig Westergaard, Luca Devoti, Iain Percy, Ben Ainslie and many, many more.
Softback copies of the book will be available online through the Finnshop on the IFA website. As soon as it is at the printers online ordering will open. The cost will be GBP 25 per copy plus postage of between GBP 3 and GBP 6 depending on the destination. Discounts are available for bulk orders to associations and retailers.
Copies will also be available through some National Associations and local suppliers: NED, DEN, SWE, NZL, ESP, ITA, POL, RUS. Full details will appear on the website later.
If your National Association has not yet put in an advance order please persuade them to do so. It makes our finances easier and can make some money for your association.
A limited numbers of hardback (probably boxed as well) special editions will be printed on demand using higher quality paper.
If you want to reserve a copy of the hardback book please register your interest by sending an email to:
stating the number of hardback copies you would like to purchase.
It's not a commitment, but gives us an idea of how many to produce. Orders received after printing cannot be guaranteed.
The cost of these special edition books will be GBP 60.
