    I don't know how they do it. I got offered a crack at this try it out day thing by a friend and spent most of my time crashing and unable to tie the appropriate knot.

    Fun though.

    Our banker looks like being beaten. Should get a few medals in Sailing though, usually one of our strongest events.

    Girl is now 8 wins from 8 in womens match-racing - apparently a child prodigy but not bad for a 17 yo in her first Olympics

    Awesome stuff.

    Ainslie back in with a chance now. 3 points behind with 2 races before the medal race. Never write him off.

    Guy sounds like a prize **** though (even the British newspapers are alluding to it now) so I hope the other bloke prevails

    Na he is just driven and generally needs a kick up the arse to get going. He has had it so will probably collect gold now.

    Surprised it hasn't been picked up on before, guess while the swimming was going on they still expected it to change round there. GB and Australia are probably the two strongest sailing nations this year, going to collect quite a few medals each.
