So.. We have tickets for the 49er medal race. Anyone know anything about it? Are we on the hill? This may be posted elsewhere but can't find it!

You'll be on the grass banks next to the fort on the Nothe.

I think 20 was the most one individual could buy. It is quite a big grass bank...

I get the impression that the sailors are not that impressed with the 'medal course' position being chosen for the benefit of the spectators.

As I dont have a ticket I will be on this grass bank, which is free and only a few hundred yards along the coast from your grass bank.  Its nearer the pub too!

Not overly. It's an old Fuji Bridge camera. 10.7x optical. Fair better view through a paid of binos.
