Standing Before The Mast podcast episode 15, Joe Cooper - Joe Cooper Sailing

My guest for episode 15 is Joe Cooper of Joe Cooper Sailing.

Joe arrived to the podcast straight from coaching a high school sailing team - still half decked out in his drysuit. Born in Sydney, Australia, Joe learned to sail just north of there in an estuary with similar characteristics to that of our Narragansett Bay. Joe has over 60,000 miles at sea and crewed for Australia in the 1977 and 1980 America’s Cup. He also has over 30 years as a sailmaker under his belt.

Joe runs Joe Cooper Sailing which provides coaching and consulting services to teams and boat owners looking to squeeze the maximum performance and value out of their program. He’s also written for major sailing publications and currently contributes to WindCheck magazine with a column called “Coop’s Corner”. You can learn more at
