Train Hard, Fight Easy. Too many sailors rely on racing as their only way of improving and it's a hugely flawed way of trying to make progress.

This week Olympic gold medal winning coach Jon Emmett shares his best training methodologies for using short-sharp training sessions to make the biggest gains in the shortest time.

Jon has even written the book on the subject! So Road To Gold is delighted to get the author of Training To Win on this week's free Zoom call where we'll be tapping up Jon for his best tips for solo sailors and small squads who work self-sufficiently or with a coach.

Jon will be sharing his best advice with the Road To Gold team this Thursday evening/ Friday morning (depending on your timezone). Join this week's Live Q&A call with Hamish Willcox, Andy Rice and the rest of the Road To Gold audience.

If you've not been to one of these calls before, give it a try. For free. Most of the people who join the call are repeat customers, because they've got so much out of these 60 minutes of gold nuggets of wisdom and sailing experience.
