Coaching checklists The eBook will provide some of the concepts and systems that great coaches use.

Rodney Pattisson MBE, the three-time Olympic medallist and winner of fourteen world and European champtionships, is an iconic figure within the sailing world. A world champion in dinghies, multihulls and offshore, he has set race and speed records and with Lawrie Smith led Britain's challenge for the America's Cup in 1983. They were beaten in the finals by Alan Bond's eventual winner, Australia II. A perfectionist when it comes to preparation, and passionate about speed on the water, Rodney's successes stem from a selfless focus on the end goal, a ruthless desire to win and an unquenchable thirst to succeed in everything he does. An intensely private individual, Rodney has always kept the media at arm's length, viewing press attention as an unwanted distraction from winning. His previously untold story not only charts his own trials and tribulations in becoming one of the best sailors in the world, but also reveals the double standards, deceit, political and sporting interference and outright cheating he faced along the way. Superdocious! is an explosive commentary, with a foreword by Sir Ben Ainslie, on a lifetime of remarkable achievements in an international sport that Rodney made his own. His story will shock, amaze and inspire not just today's young sailors looking to realise their own dreams, but every sportsman and woman around the world.

Knife-edge decisions, adrenalin rushes, extreme weather, bitter rivalries, heart-stopping races – they are all in a day’s work for Ben Ainslie. Against all odds, in the London 2012 Olympics Ben Ainslie thrillingly won a fourth successive gold medal, making him the greatest ever Olympic sailor and a British hero, chosen from many to be the flag bearer for the closing ceremony. From his proudest moment representing Team GB, to one tough decision that almost risked destroying his career, this is a unique insight into the man who cannot let himself be second best. It shows what really takes place in the white heat of competition and lifts the lid on this toughest of sports. REVISED AND UPDATED FOR PAPERBACK TO INCLUDE LONDON 2012.
