Well I'd sooner see the money go there, than funding legal aid lawyers (on both sides) fighting for Abu Katada or whatever his name is, or providing mobility scooters to clinically obese kids, or carers and house demolition for 60 stone 18yr olds, or providing cars for our local immigrants to save on taxi bills when they need to collect their benefit cheques.

you'll find quite a few of them messing around on boards in their free time (and yes, kite surfing too allegedly!)  Quote from one of the team members off record- one of the benefits of sailing for Team GB, being thoroughly spoilt rotten with pimp neil pryde kit!

There are queues forming to learn to kitesurf amongst the Weymouth lot and the place is awash with North kit (their agent lives down there and back doors lots of it).

The kitesurfing thing is certainly kicking off in Rio as well at the moment, All week there has been a ratio of 2 :1 kites over boards on the local beachs.
Thats freestyleing as well as point to point sailing going on.
