Re: Olympic Sailing Coverage

Unfortunately, the video coverage I've see of the sailing hasn't been much better. I can't understand why but sailing just doesn't get any recognition at the summer games. The only think I have been able to find is a few short videos on the NBC site.

Re: Olympic Sailing Coverage

BBC has shown the coverage. They have some top sailors here. Americans simply do not have any interest if we don't have competitors among the leaders. NBC has a very limited presence in Weymouth.
