Patterson unfortunately broke his mast on the way in during the trials when lagging ...  Confused

I hadn't realised how unlucky Warren & Hunt had been with their silver.  The FD trials were obviously a lot tougher than the Olympics themselves.

Thank goodness sailing kit has improved since and sideburns have gone out of fashion.

Not so much rig tension in those days, but Olympian’s were still fit.

Note Pym the paddle 
Happily living in the past

Sideburns have not gone out of fashion.

Nowadays, typically if you come third you have to write the report. Back then in the Finns it would appear you had to write a song instead...….
OK 2139 & 2148

Kiel week happening now... there's some good footage from the 49er/FX and Nacras. 

Of course what the video above so well is follow the story of the season through and you really get a sense of the characters.

I did chuckle at the folky Finn ditty ...

I bet that film was quite ground breaking at the time; some of the footage was clearly done by a swimmer

Very much enjoyed the Pattisson bio, insight into the man and how different it was back then

Interesting summary talks about him being a victim of cheating. I thought the film was quite pointed about Patterson breaking his slow mast in the trials.
