Is anyone watching it this morning, I can not find it on BBC interactive but some one from bbc i just rang said you could watch it if you had sky on the BBC interactive. Getting really frustrated when the timetable says that its on from 6 till 10 am this morning.

lost their lead to the Austrians. Almost twin wiring..

That tide looks vicious.

Was the Olympic village just described as "a bit sh***"?

AAAARGH. Bloody director. Cutting away from the line shot a second before two boats cross together is NOT COOL.

(I realise this isn't the BBC's fault)

And is Shirely Robertson going to eventually snap? I'm sure there's only so many references to "your former team mates" she can take...

What about the rule observance in the 9er's - there looks to me like there's been a couple of collisions at the 1st windard mark in race 2 (usa & ukr) then on the 2nd round about 10th or later a gybe setting boat totally got in the way of a boat on portlayline..

yeah I thought that about the tide as well, just watching the angles, speeds pre-start...

completely missed the australians going round the other buoy in race 2, and yet we could all see it clearly...then seemed to be surprised when they turned up.
