If you have watched the Boat Whisper DVD's/Digital Downloads and need another explanation, or if you are simply interested in making your boat sail faster without any investment in sails or rig tuning, then why not help arrange a Boat Whisperer Talk sessions which can be held at your local sailing club.

Do they make a difference?
I like to recall the time I was accosted by almost every Australian at the Laser Masters Worlds in Terrigal Australia. They were all excited about how the Boat Whisperer DVD's had improved their racing and how it had inspired them to attend the World Championships. Some explained that the DVD's had shaved 5 minutes off their race track. Laurence (the main sailor in the Upwind and Downwind DVD's) was obviously the hero as it was his mistakes that were enlightening. If you prefer a digital download - see here:


When do they take place?
I generally do the talks between the clocks going back for the winter and forwards for the spring. There is no point talking to sailors when the sun and wind are out. But I am confident that I can change a sailors mindset so they can start to improve their sailing straight away.


How can I book a Boat Whisperer?
Send me an email (steve at rooster sailing dot com) and I can try and dovetail you in. I have talked in New York and Reykjavik so there is no problem coming to your local sailing club.

How much do they cost?
The basic fee is £250 plus vat, plus expenses. Sometimes flying is cheaper! You would set the ticket price.

Which days am I free?
Normally I try and avoid weekends and holidays as this gets in the way of family sailing time. My best day is probably a Wednesday evening.

How can I organise a talk at my club?
Discuss the idea with your committee to get some funding approval and send me an email to check on my availability, hopefully, I can fit you in. If you would like to expand the talk to local clubs, you might find it an ideal inspiration to building support for your winter programme or spring regatta. Let me know if we can advertise the talk on this page.

What is the Normal Programme?
Most clubs start at 19:00 and take a 20-minute break for some food, usually included in the ticket price. I wrap the talk at about 22:15 although there are at least a couple of breaks to refill your glasses.


Dinghy SHow Talk 3

Please Comment
If you have seen me talk before and would like to recommend it to someone else - please comment so others might be inspired to arrange one or travel to one locally. I have some current experience in single and double handed dinghies as well as coaching Olympic sailors - my sailing CV speaks of someone who is perhaps slightly devoted to dinghy sailing, some might call me an Anorack. - ;)
