Writers wanted

14 03 2011

Hi guys,

So, I’m on the look out for new writers for the blog. Currently we average over 10k visits per month without even trying, so it’s about time that I put some more effort into it.

If you’d like to write articles for V49R, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you. Anything from kit reviews, racing reports, news updates from your sailing team, tips and advice, or anything else relevant to a sailing audience will be welcome.



Singlehander tips from Jon Emmett

26 11 2009

Whilst this blog has always featured news and tips for high performance sailing (ok, two man high performance sailing), I thought it was about time that we started to cater for all of you guys sailing singlehanders.  With this in mind, I’ve persuaded  multiple Laser Radial National Champion Jon Emmett to provide some top level coaching tips and advice for singlehander sailors.   Over the next few months we’ll be featuring several blog posts from Jon, including training and techniques for starting, upwind technique and tactics.  Furthermore, he’ll be reporting on his Laser Radial events to keep everyone interested in between these posts.

Take a look at Jon’s site, here, and if you really want to make some improvements to your game, buy his superb book Be your own sailing coach (it’s now under £9 for 290 pages of tips and advice. Well worth it)
