So you've several hours of sailing per day, covered on red button and by BBC Sports App, with a commentator team that includes an Olympic sailing double medallist and that is your idea of "crap". What part of this crap-ness would you like to see improved?

Watching the 470's sail the final reach to the finish yesterday was some of the most spectacular footage of the whole games imho. For me, thats the sort of TV that might make people take more notice of our sport. For a boat like the 470, endless windward leewards doesn't make great TV fodder albeit the most tactical format.

Watched all the medal races on line yesterday. The last one was compelling, and actually had cameras on it. Most of the Greece and Australia battle was missed at vital moments. Commentary was still pants.

I would search 'Olympics 2016: sailing' unless you want old footage... ;-p

I've been investigating.

The Beeb coverage is on several temporary channels on freeview, sky and others, in HD & SD
