Good day on the water so far for GB. Stu and Stevie going well...
And Richard Whitworth mentioned in name on the commentary:
Team GB looking good on the water...
How many series discards?
Think only 1 which comes in after 5 races. Doesn't seem many for the 49er series.
I was there!
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).
What a great day on the water yesterday at Weymouth.
Looking pretty impressive in the 470s too - almost a matchrace already for Luke and Stuart with the Aussies.
