That'll make it better to watch!

Watching the windmills and flags on the pier at Quingdao it always looks like a nice force 2, but then you watch them sailong and it looks like there is hardly any wind at all. 

Another thing - if Quingdao is hot why do they not get a nice sea breeze in the afternoon?

Who's forecast is that?
The 'Guru says light, but increasing towards the end of the day.
Friday looks breezy, and next wednesday gets 20kts by the end of the day...
Is there any sailing still going on by next wednesday?

Quite right, TCMG, Friday not tomorrow.

The RS:X medal race is next Wed., also racing for the Stars and the Tornados.

Funny, all the pictures I've seen of the racing, it looks quite windy... little waves, hiking out... maybe they only show the windy ones?

The photographers have been fantastic at catching the boats as they're going down waves!

TV coverage today had me feeling really bad for them, specially as it's blowing seagulls backwards here!
