Some thoughts so far.....

It seems as if the Chinese TV coverage is picking a fleet a day and there is no other coverage of the other fleets - or am I missing something (today 49ers but no Finn or Yngling coverage)?

The light winds and at times weird coverage - (have any of the film crew or directors ever seen a dinghy race before?) is not doing our sport any great favours.

http://www.sailing.org/olympics is a fantastic source of info.

There appear to be a number of incidents on the water not backed by umpire or protest - exactly like normal sailing!

Fo those of us who do go dinghy sailing it is just great have whole dinghy races on TV (Sky + red button) - not sure what the general sports enthusiast would make of the "action" so far.

I can't believe I booked a whole weeks holiday (last year) with no TV or internet connection for the 2nd week  - ARGGGGGGGHHHHHH!
Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else
