Personal favourite from 420 days: "Right, when you're crewing, you need to be a bit grrr, but a bit ninja at the same time..."

If your legs don't hurt you aren't hiking hard enough, if they do hurt you arent fit enough!

Not a coach comment but sound advice when allowing me to sail my Mirror round to Cowes from Wootton Creek for the first time when I was about 10.
 
"If you get in trouble whatever you do stay with the boat. The RNLI can see a boat better than your head."
 
Of course that was in the days when it wasnt frowned upon to allow your kids to venture out alone without rescue cover. I am sure my parents checked the weather forecast before I was allowed to go but I dont remember any misgivings about the venture. It was all part of our Cowes Dinghy Week experience.
