I had a great conversation with James O’Callaghan, high performance director for the Irish sailing team and four time Olympic coaching veteran. As well as the inside perspective on competitive sailing James also talks about his move to Spain for a year ago with his wife and two small daughters. He has some tips for amateur athletes and when pushed, gives his approach to coaching the Irish economy back to health.  I had a great time chatting with James and I think you will enjoy listening.
