And Richard Whitworth mentioned in name on the commentary:

"Hollingworth Lake. Some good sailors there. Richard Whitworth. Wonder if he's still there?" Priceless!

Well done all. Keep up the good work.

How many series discards?

03/08/2012 10:23:15
Think only 1 which comes in after 5 races. Doesn't seem many for the 49er series.

I was there!
best day out. Good news regularly arriving throughout the day.
49 ers were in the harbour but the GBR spinnaker was very clear.
470 race was good to watch.

They sail 10 races with 1 discard.(15 for the 49'er). The top 10 boats go into a final race were thier score is doubled, 2 for first, 4 for second etc. and added to thier 9 race score.

I think the 49ers get two discards.

49ers usually get an extra discard after 12 races (when sailing a qualifying and a final series before the medal race).  Not at the Olympic regatta though, which is effectively all Gold Fleet racing. SI 25 'Scoring' refers (click the link below and scroll down).[12499].pdf

What a great day on the water yesterday at Weymouth.
As Marshall Leader for the medal racing yesterday, I had the honour of escorting Ben off the course, up to the Nothe and then back to the Olympic Centre. Well done Ben. Felt sorry for Percy and Bart.

Looking pretty impressive in the 470s too - almost a matchrace already for Luke and Stuart with the Aussies.
