SWE just pulled back 15 - 20 seconds on ITA.  GBR went the same side of the course as SWE - so fingers crossed

You are all so lucky. I am based in Japan now and all I can see on the telly here are the sports that the Japanese team participate in and public seems interested. Got a lifetime appreciation of Judo, Lacrosse and air-rifle shooting. Can I have my sailing coverage now please??? Enjoy whatever you have!

There seem to be a number of broadcasters with websites showing the same live coverage but with their own commentaries. SA (dinghy forum) has a thread with  links with a number of them. The BBC coverage most of us are watching appears to be available only to UK IP addresses but maybe if you look around you can find something available in Japan.

I haven't even tried to find sailing coverage on the TV.
