The Sail-World Team spent much of yesterday writing from the Media Centre at the ISAF Sailing World Cup, overlooking a very wet boat park with driving rain and 35 knot gusts, there was an enforced lay day at this regatta. Hopefully today the sea state will have eased and the wind will have dropped enough to allow racing.

Been some interesting developments on the Olympic campaign scene. It’s interesting to watch the progress in the Australian squad, the highlight for me have been the rapid progress of 20 year old Finn sailor Jake Tilley, 200cm (6'7) and still growing, the Silver medallists debut as Darren Bundock and Nina Curtis have boarded their Nacra 17 'Raft to Rio', of course the continuing success of Belcher and Ryan.

Lots of images from Richard Gladwell and Jeff Crowe surfacing and some good stories already and lots more to come.
Interesting interviews at the ISAF Sailing World Cup dinner at Sandringham Yacht Club, on Tuesday night.

We are currently transcribing the Q&A sessions between John Bertrand Matt Belcher and Will Ryan and Tom Slingsby, Glenn Ashby, Nathan Outtertridge and Iain (Goobs) Jensen.

The jaw dropping moment in the evenings session was the casual announcement by Gashby that he was the first signing for the 35th America’s Cup by Team New Zealand.
