Tornado's are going to be painful if the wind stays as it is.  Force 4 to 5 and it would be cracking entertainment

A bit of time looking at the code zero's but they are big lumbering boats in no wind.

 

Good on Penny for the bullet though.

cant get enough of it, the misses is bored of my running commentry at 6.00 am .shame they could not film all the races from all the classes so it could be shown other times though.

Richard does seem to miss a lot f the obvious stuff though.did do a search for richard on internet and this is what i found on wikipedia

I think its brilliant to see the sailing, it would have been better with gps tracking and flicking to a virtual scene to show who is in front etc, like the americas cup had. but its great to have sailing on tv.

I know its light winds, but i still find it exciting. it would also be nice if they looked at some other classes as well, old shirley (who is great) keeps on saying that bens pulled through the fleet, i wanna see that not the first place rsx mile in fron of the others. 49ers are back on tomorrow

There was a bit of virtual tracking today, but at times it seemed even more confused as Richard! Certainly nowhere near as accurate as the AC coverage.

I have to say that whilst it's good to see sailing on the TV the coverage is not all it could be. They don't seem to be able to show anything other than the close inshore course and we end up with 45 minutes every day of beach & prom pictures.

Without the ISAF site I wouldn't have a clue what was happening.
