About Steve Cockerill

While sailing 470´s and Lasers in successive campaigns between 1988 and 1996, Steve honed his big fleet experience. He then gained the coach´s perspective in the run up to the 2000 Olympic games and has won over 60 major championships to date, including his latest title of ‘2018 Laser Radial Grand Master World Champion’.

  • 2019 - 1st Master, 1st Loving Cup, 1st Lady Crew (Sarah), 3rd RS400 UK and Irish Nationals (Steve and Sarah)

Steve, affectionately known as ´The Boat Whisperer´ since the release of his Upwind and Downwind Boat Whisperer DVD sets, has been eager to produce a Tactics DVD to add to the series. The introduction of GPS loggers, TackTracker analysis software, and HD waterproof cameras has made this his most exciting project yet.
Synopsis of the ‘The Boat Whisperer TACTICS‘ double disc DVD Series.
The location for most of the scenes on this double DVD, is set in the Island of Cabarete, the water-sports capital of the Dominican Republic’s golden coast in the Caribbean.
Most of the action is set in the blue, warm waters and skies of the Caribbean, using Lasers and Laser Radials, but reality soon hits us with some interesting footage of the Rooster 8.1 Nationals held in an overcast UK on the Thames in 2010. At this location, Steve discusses how to get on the correct side of those localized wind pressure/gusts (called pressure sailing).
Steve for most of the first session discusses the situations and applied tactics, commentating on the spectacular footage with HD cameras shot from the conventional support boat, but also from the top of Laser masts, sterns and bow shots (used on the Rooster 8.1)
The content is aimed at the typical dingy race club sailor or occasional open meeting traveller who wishes to improve and understand how those regular race winners are consistently fast on the dinghy race track.
The commenting on each situation is clear and easily understood, and to complement the HD videos clips, the use of GPS receivers and tracking software (Tacktracker) has been used. Most of the first DVD concentrates on the start/upwind/windward mark roundings and how to either get in the right race track position (called ‘positioning for boatspeed’ ) or how to extract yourself from those ‘not so good ‘situations either on the start line or the windward mark approaches.
The second session starts with start line tactics, dealing with how to ‘poach’ leeward gaps / defending them, port end biased start lines and port tack starts and those all important ‘bail out situations’ at the start.
