Playing the Long Game
© Ian Roman/ Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing: Ian Walker is prepared to be patient
Ian Walker is not known for his patience. But at the start of Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing drifted across the start line virtually last, the only boat with two reefs in the mainsail. Two minutes later it was obvious why. The breeze was gusting up to 40 knots. For Walker it's about playing the long game, about preserving bodies and equipment, and sails in particular. It's one of the topics covered in our interview with the double Olympic medallist.

What Others are Saying...
"I think the site is brilliant!!! I believe that knowledge is more important than material things in sailing. I'll happily buy a book for a tenner or do a day's coaching for 50 quid just to pick up one thing.
But already after sieving through only a few articles on SailJuice I believe my knowledge has increased substantially. I have spent five times that on the odd day's coaching and learnt nothing like as much."
