Olympic Redux

Olympic Redux


Two weeks of dull, lifeless Qingdao sailing was punctuated by some intensely
hot action this morning, as the Stars and Tornados sailed their medal
races in 15-20 knots of breeze; similar conditions to those that wrecked
the 49er fleet just a couple days ago. Much of the SA community has
been critical of the medal race, and up until today they’ve been right
in their critique – but today’s medal races were brilliant and
exciting – even for the half-dozen nonsailors on the planet who
watched them.
