I think I heard Emma Wilson thank the team and the Slush Puppy man live on BBC during her post medal race interview, does that count?

Discovery + @ 6.99 p/month and cancellable.

Great coverage. Watch live or replay whenever you want to - and can be sent to TV via Chromecast.

Bumper day of medal racing tomorrow  Smile

Meanwhile my  £7 Discovery + is on the 470 races full time, connected to my TV via a  £15 HDMI cable. It is superb. 

I'll take a break from the action and check out the results - thanks for the heads up

results centre there are 4 tabs along the bottom of the top picture, one of which is overall results which gives you the layout of all races sailed and the gross and net points.
Everything I say is my opinion, honest

Loving the fact that you can use the slide bar at the bottom of the screen to go back to all the races. Fabulous coverage, esp the onboard microphones picking up their voices

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Never mind 'live' - I would settle for something on YouTube to watch in the evening after real sailing. But has anyone found a results table yet? I have watched most of the Laser races on the computer animation on the RYA site but can't find out who has got how many points so far. Our man Hanson has too many I fear, in spite of his 3rd earlier on today

You have to draw the line somewhere, Netflix, amazon etc, goes on and on, sports bodies need to balance finances with attracting new people, marginal sports in particular.

For £6.99 you get all the sports on your PC, just watched the amazing finish in 49er race 1
