Rodney Pattisson MBE, the three-time Olympic medalist and multi-world champion, is an iconic figure within the sailing world. A winner in dinghies, multihulls, and offshore, he has set race and speed records, and with Lawrie Smith led Britain's challenge for the America's Cup in 1983. They were beaten in the finals by Alan Bond's eventual winner, Australia II.

A perfectionist when it comes to race preparation, and passionate about speed on the water, Pattisson's 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, Pattisson has always kept his own counsel, keeping the media at arm's length and viewing press attention as an unwanted distraction from winning. His previously 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.
