Olympic Sailing commentary

How the non sailing world sees Olympic sailing:

Big congrats to Dorian Van Rijsselberge from the Netherlands for winning the men's fleet with 2 races to spare.
Both his training partners for the past quad also placed in the top 10- Canadian Zak Plavsic & New Zealander JP Tobin.
Their program was run by former Olympian windsurfer Aaron McIntosh.

The biggest thing I came away with after watching the Olympic sailing was from the Australian 49er team who said "It's not about your best race- It's about your worst. Make sure every race is a keeper. Every single point counts."
