Want to make year-round progress on your personal Road To Gold?
Join Hamish Willcox and Andy Rice for a weekly deep-dive into all things sailing and racing...
Each week we run live Group Coaching Calls, hosted by gold medal-winning coach Hamish Willcox and sailing commentator Andy Rice.
We regularly invite top experts onto the calls to share their unique insights and experience with a view to making YOU sail faster (not to mention the champion sailors who join as part of our audience each week).
Where else can you get tailored advice from sailors like these?
Please find me a similar platform in any sport that provides unconditional knowledge, Q&As and the possibility to meet the finest athletes and coaches.
Road To Gold brings together novices with an Olympic, World and America’s Cup winners. Find me in Tennis, F1, NFL, soccer, basketball, swimming, track & field etc a platform that the sport’s legends reveal their secrets and talk regularly to the community… You won’t!
In RTG the amount of knowledge is enormous and applies to each individual regardless of his/her sailing experience.

“Best learning experience in 40 years on the water, thank you Hamish and Andy for facilitating.” - Penny Clark, Olympic Laser Radial sailor

“It is great that more and more people are getting on the Road To Gold. Have been loving it, thanks so much for kicking this off during lockdown and then keeping it going with the Q&As. A lot of learnings not only for sailing, but many other aspects in life too.” -Jian Chew, Paper Tiger cat sailor
“I joined the programme late and I am a weekend warrior, but I have taken away 3 or 4 valuable points from each Q&A chat. Thank you so much for making this so accessible. Looking forward to putting all this into action on the water.” - Zena Martin, GP14 sailor

Road To Gold is an interesting journey. From my perspective I think you and Hamish have hit a nerve where you are bringing the sailing community together, across classes, age, sex, weekend warriors and the superstars. That's the beauty of it. I think the topics for the shows are endless when things get back to normal.
Having live reports from events, interviews with the sailors and hearing the stories of successful campaigns in the past is always interesting. For me RTG is developing into a tool for improving my own sailing, being a part of the global sailing community and actually also entertainment!
Loving the show and the great questions and answers from you and Hamish. Who knows where this will end!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does each coaching call last?
The sessions are an hour long, but sometimes we go a bit longer to squeeze in a few more questions.
When do you run the sessions?
We like to vary the times and days of the week so we can serve people in different timezones. Hamish is in New Zealand while Andy is in the UK, so it's a balancing act! You'll always be notified a few days before.
What if I can't make it for the live session?
No problem! Submit your questions to us beforehand and we'll make sure they get answered. You'll then be able to watch or download the recording the following day.
How long do I have access to the recordings?
For as long as you are a subscriber, they'll be available for streaming or download.
Do you answer EVERY question?
We try to get round to as many as we can. And, of course, we give priority to questions from paying customers (over other attendees who turn up during the live call).
HOWEVER some questions are more beneficial to the group than others, so if your question is only specific to your individual situation we are less able to discuss it in-depth. We are much more likely to address your question when it also applies to the average racing sailor.
What if I need more 1-to-1 help?
We are currently talking to some top coaches and will be arranging 1-to-1 coaching for people who want to get even more clarity on their racing. More on this soon!
STILL NOT SURE?
