They may not have lost any days during the test events, but so far in the actual regatta (where it counts in front of the world) we've had racing so exciting they took the p*ss out of it on mock the week and it looks like potentially another day lost today, giving us a total of 2 so far. 

Who said this was an ok venue?

I might be sailing it, but it's still sh**e!

Good grief, there seem to be boats leaning over in the breeze. Are they supposed to do that?

Looks like the breeze is in! I've started the daily live update in anticipation (hope that's not a bad move...)

Mock the Week was very funny!

It was very funny watching the swedish start reaching into the top mark shortly followed by the leading tornados and finally several minutes back the brazilian and italian stars.
