Dan Slater reports on the ASB Finn 2008 campaign on the eve of the first race in the 2008 Olympic Regatta:

Well tomorrow is really what the last four years has all been about and its exciting that it has finally come round. I have had a great build up and everything has been great. The boat feels good and looks good I feel good about my preparation and am looking forward to tomorrow.

The Olympic village here in Qingdao is fantastic and really a credit to the Chinese for this awesome facility. On the International Finn website Zach the Finn sailor from the USA has posted a video tour of the village and marina.

Today I went out for a final sail with Ben Ainslie and Peer Moberg from Norway and this was a really good day to just go sailing and enjoy it with nothing really to much to do except feel good in the boat and do some time on distance stuff in the current.

So thanks to everyone and I hope I have some good news to report tomorrow.
