Topic : 49er Race 10

Anyone see the last medal race of the 49er class on Sunday morning. Best TV ever. Well done Stevie and Ben for just finishing.

It remined me of that Heavy Race in 1970 at Pwhelli. The Danes were increadible with just that little bit of luck so neccesary,Stevie didn't seem to get the rub of the green in that regatta but as you say well done, you are right Barry probably the only time sailing has looked exciting on telly.

No problem. I will start training straight away for 2012. How do you think a 49er will go with 210k on the wires. One thing is for sure. We will be able to keep the bows up!
