Sailing World Cup Final – Two coaches and an over-qualified media boat driver

I took the opportunity today on the first official day of racing at the Sailing World Cup Final in Melbourne to talk to two coaches about how they are preparing their sailors. Geoff Woolley, the coach of dual gold medallists Liesl Tesch and Dan Fitzgibbon in the Skud18, is now coaching the 470 Women on the Australian Sailing Squad, and Darren Bundock, dual Olympic silver medallist, recently transitioned from sailing himself to become coach for the Nacra 17 Australian Sailing Squad. Enjoy the action from two very different, but both successful coaches here at the Sailing World Cup in Melbourne.

Middo. Race Officer, Umpire, well-known sailor in the land “Downunder” was my media boat driver today. Well over-qualified to drive me around, but fantastic company as always. So just why does Middo volunteer for Sailing World Cup Melbourne in his time off? Listen in to our chat out on the beautiful waters of Port Phillip Bay…
