Hi Camille, I am a big fan of Olympics, booked time off work for London Olympics.

Has the complete team been announced yet? The announced most of it back in October but said holding off on Nacra and one other boat. 

Whatever the critics say about World sailing there generally is some great footage of the big events so yes hopefully good. Proper sailing rather that the  Iíve got a big wallet Engineering cup.

I''ll watch the Laser races because I sail one occasionally and can relate to it. Also I find the speed of the faster boats/boards masks the tactics and makes them less interesting to watch.

I would fully agree with that plus the Finns, the pumping down wind can be poetry- and it is there last Olympics

Not overly enamored with the olympics per se but I will give the 470 a watch, think it's a lovely boat. Depending on who gets chosen I may also watch the Nacra.

Couldn't agree more! Laser races tend to show the thrill of sailing a bit more...
