Espn2 also covered the race, at least down here in Grenada. I found the commercials on NBC to be absolutely disgusting; with such short races, why couldn't they put the commercials before and after the races? Perhaps they broadcast the soaps well, but they should never be allowed to broadcast sailing again.
