Rodney Pattisson MBE, the three-time Olympic medallist and multi-world champion, is an iconic figure within the sailing world. A world champion in dinghies, multihulls and offshore, he has set race and speed records and with Lawrie Smith led Britains challenge for the Americas Cup in 1983. They were beaten in the finals by Alan Bonds eventual winner, Australia II. A perfectionist when it comes to preparation, and passionate about speed on the water, Rodneys successes stem from a selfless focus on the end goal, a ruthless desire to win and an unquenchable thirst to succeed in everything he does. An intensely private individual, Rodney has always kept his own counsel, keeping the media at arms length, viewing press attention as an unwanted distraction from winning. His perviously untold story not only charts his own trials and tribulations in becoming one of the best sailors in the world, but also reveals the double standards, deceit, political and sporting interference and outright cheating he faced along the way. Superdocious! is an explosive commentary, with a foreword by Sir Ben Ainslie, on a lifetime of remarkable achievements in an international sport that Rodney made his own. His story will shock, amaze and inspire not just todays young sailors looking to realise their own dreams, but every sportsman and woman around the world. His narrative will also be essential reading for coaches, providing them with unique analogies that can be applied equally to sport and business.
