Series 3 - Ep14 - Sailing's Super Coaches Part 2 Shirley Robertson's Sailing Podcast

    • Sports

In this month's two part Podcast Shirley Robertson talks to four of sailing's most successful and influential sailing coaches.

In Episode Two Robertson talks to one of Olympic Sailing's most influential coaches, and she talks to one of the business world's high end psychologists who's had a big impact on the world of offshore sailing.

A double Olympic silver medallist himself, Joe Glanfield has recently coached Hannah Mills to her third Olympic medal.  A gold in Tokyo with Eilidh Macintyre in the 470 Class made her the most successful female Olympic sailor of all time - each one of her three Olympic medals has been won with Glanfield as her coach.  His thoughts on how to achieve success at an Olympic level, how to handle the stresses of sailing at such a high level are enlightening.

And to finish the four interview podcast, Robertson talks to Dutch business development coach Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel - an organisational psychologist specialising in executive team development who's unique approach to motivating team communication and solid leadership saw her apply her in depth knowledge in the last two editions of the Volvo Ocean Race.  Eight time Volvo veteran Bouwe Bekking recruited van Boxtel to coach his team at Team Brunel, and her insights into the application of business theory to offshore sailing are fascinating.

Both coaches operate at a very high level, both coach some of the biggest names in the sport, but their thoughts and methods are as relevant on an Olympic sailing course as they are to the amateur weekend racer.

It's an inspiring listen as Robertson once again takes a deep dive into some of the most fascinating characters in the sport of sailing.
