London Olympics: The Last Match Race

This afternoon I've been gripped by streaming the final of Elliot 6m racing in which we've seen a broach and the Australian skipper swimming.

I think the match racing was my favourite of all the classes I saw on the Nothe, dramas of action and tactics, always with one winner (ultimately Spain, above) and one loser (Australian, below).
These photos are from my last trip down to Weymouth on Tuesday, and I really wish I could have been there today for one more race.

Maybe that's the way it should be, to leave us wanting more.

Thank you London Olympic sailing at Weymouth in 2012 - it was absolutely fantastic!
