Yep You know I love sailing. And the Olympics is special. Shame on NBC for NOT AIRING ONE race of Sailing on US TV. But I have loved watching all the racing on the nbcolympics.com website, just amazing silverlight can do.
Well wouldn't you know a team that was in first place going into the last race in the 49er fleet broke their mast right before the start. Croatia team lent their boat to the Demark team and the didn't win the race, but finished enough to keep the goal. Other team protested but they were turned down.
Here is a great 3 minute video from the NBC site, go watch it, click on the link below.
Stormy seas and wild twists lead to sailing gold
