His first book Be Your Own Sailing Coach was a great success and has recently been republished as Coach Yourself to Win. His second book Be Your Own Tactics Coach is still going strong and both books are available to buy both from Amazon.

Jon has both a Coach Yourself to Win page and a Coach Yourself to Win group on facebook which he uses to share useful information and live feeds from regattas.

Finally there is a jonemmettsailing channel on youtube.

In 2011 he  started coaching Lijia Xu from China after the 2011 Sail for Gold regatta. He worked with 'Lily' right up to her Gold medal at the 2012 Olympics.

In 2013 he won the UK National Championships and the Apprentice Masters World Champion, and successfully defended both titles in 2014.Jon rounding the windward mark
