Forty years ago (almost) the texts that greatly enhanced my understanding of racing sailing dinghies were Sail Racer (Jack Knights), Start to Win (Eric Twinname), and Racing Dinghy Sails (Jeremy Howard-Wlliams).
 
Have these books been bettered in recent years, does anybody think?

Stuart Walker - Advanced Racing Tactics - Classic from the 70's
High Performance Sailing - Frank Bethwaite (90's) brilliant, scientific approach (not to be confused with Higher Perfomance Sailing which is not a later edition but a different work focused more on Aussie Skiffs)
