This month we hear from double Olympic silver medallist Joe Glanfield and London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Luke Patience who announced their new partnership campaigning for Rio 2016 in the 470 class at the show.

Joe and Luke cover a whole range of subjects as they interview each other, from who their sailing and sporting heroes are to what they perceive are the strengths and weaknesses of their new paring.  Joe also chats about how it feels to be making a return to competitive sailing and the transition back to sailor from coach, while Luke explains how it feels when you cross the finish line knowing you’ve won an Olympic medal.

This interview is the third instalment in a series of nine monthly video interviews filmed at the RYA Dinghy Show 2013 with a new video being issued each month focusing on one of the main stage talks or coaching area sessions with the presenters answering questions relating to their talks.
