  • This event has passed.

Rodney Pattisson, Barry Pickthall

Thursday 10th October 18:00 - 19:00 | Northwood House

Legendary multi-champion, triple Olympic medallist, Rodney Pattisson will be interviewed by former Times yachting correspondent, Barry Pickthall, about his controversial autobiography, Superdocious!. A must read for any aspiring champion, it is a warts and all account of one man’s drive to reach the top and the fair and foul methods employed by his rivals and established figures within the sport to undermine his continued dominance and influence.

Co-author Pickthall will pose key questions to Pattisson about his climb to the top of the sport, the cheating that still plagues the sport, his battles with yachting’s establishment and controversial views on everything from Olympic squad systems and missed opportunities to support grass-root sailing. Audience participation will be welcomed.
