Vern Neville - research

 sailing fitness In association with the Loughborough University School of Sport, Exercise & Health Sciences and the Sports Technology Institute, Vern Neville is investigating the demands of professional big-boat sailing. This includes some of the first research on the physiological demands and performance of elite big-boat sailors.

Current research includes the effect of age on elite performance, the science of performance and fatigue monitoring of elite athletes, and the effective use of analytics and diagnostics within elite level sport.
