Well, it looks like the Brits are dominating again. Their national sailing team should be the model that everyone follows. Big Ben is CRUSHING the Finn fleet. Tip of the hat to the UK sailing authority. They know what's going on.
Other teams that are doing well? Well, two that stick out are France and Greece. China is doing very well in the women's sailing. The US? Well, we are doing pretty well in the Finn, Yngling, Tornado, Women's Laser, and of course, in the Star class. I think that we are even respectable in the 49er. Zach and Page Railey are two of the real bright lights in US Olympic sailing. The 470 teams and the Men's Laser teams are a little off the pace and I thought that we would do better there, but conditions have been tough (very light) from what I understand and it may take awhile to get acclimated.
