After a successful career in Olympic campaigning, including a bronze medal in the 49er at London 2012, Allan Norregaard has transformed into the Ethan Hunt of the coaching world...

Mission Impossible!

How to take sailors with previously only an outside hope of getting to the Games and making sure they qualify. We're not necessarily talking about turning sailors into medal winners but still getting them significantly up the pecking order, good enough to realise a life-long dream of making it to the Games.

What Allan does for his Olympic dreamers can also work for you, whatever level you're aspiring to. It's about setting big goals with a clear plan of priorities.

What we'll be covering: How to punch well above your weight!

We'll also be getting Allan to spill the beans on 'Tower Trapezing' - the pioneering extra gear of boatspeed that he used towards the end of his 49er skiff racing career. It's yet another example of how the Dynamic Dane looks at things a little differently from most of us...

Apart from the main topic of the call, the Road To Gold team will be digging into a wide range of topics with our special guest. This is a unique format - half podcast and half phone-in.

Join Road To Gold regulars Hamish Willcox and Andy Rice this Monday for a 60-minute Q&A session with Allan, and learn how to apply his hard-earned experience to your own sailing ventures.
