Champions Profile

James Date


Profile:
I started sailing aged 6 in an optimist at British Steel Sailing Club in South Wales, with a walkie talkie strapped to the bulkhead so my dad could relay instructions from the shore! Mirrors and 420 youth squad and then Lasers followed. I went to 5 laser Europeans and 3 World Championships, and coached the Optimist and Laser national squads in the off season. I've sailed 800's since 2002 when I decided that hiking out was a bad idea. A 5 year break from sailing ended in 2010 when Toby tempted me back into the 800.


Tips:
Communication, communication! Constant chat between helm and crew, if either are not getting the information they need, they should be asking questions to get it. The course, pressure, other boats, angles, and modes. This is how Toby and I cope in the absence of any training!
