Each chapter is closed with not-to-be missed advice from Olympic medallists - making this a must-have book for all sailors who aspire to great success.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"It is without doubt that this book will be a blessing for all sailors who read it. An excellent coach, [Jon] will give every reader the best value in sailing knowledge by sharing his experience and suggestions." Lijia Xu, Laser Radial class gold medallist, London 2012 Olympic Games. "Emmett is a natural communicator. While he is now coaching at the highest level, thanks to his club coaching experience he is able to distil the elements of complex subjects down into their essentials and then break them into steps. His books are very much practical manuals... must reads for dinghy sailors." Sail World. "The book is based around 'Goal Setting' as a training development tool in each chapter. The 12 chapters start with an introduction to Targets and Goal Setting and move through boat speed and boat handling, strategy, tactics and rules, psychology and fitness." Laser World. "If you can read, absorb and put into practice just some of the advice given, you'll be a better sailor - if you can take most of the knowledge with you, there is no reason why you shouldn't win. Backed by top class colour graphics and photos, Emmett has a refreshing way of delivering the words, and that, in turn, makes it easier to coach yourself." Sailing Magazine.
