Gold medal winning coach, Jon Emmett works
with sailors and coaches around the world and is frequently asked things
like: ‘What is a good exercise to improve this?’ ‘Why do we do this
exercise?’ ‘How do we make the exercise more / less difficult?’ This
book is the answer to those frequently asked questions.
It contains training exercises for each
element of a sailing race. As well as describing and illustrating the
exercise, it tells you what skills you are trying to improve, why and
how to make the exercise harder or easier.
The book will enable coaches to deliver
better, more focussed, training sessions, but it will also help sailors
who don’t have the benefit of a coach to practise and improve their
sailing skills. The exercises are marked as to whether they are suitable
for solo boats, groups of boats or those with a coach boat.
