Ainslie GOLD, Perce and Bart SILVER but there is still plenty of racing going on

Situation normal.

Despite the historic victory of Ben Ainslie gaining, his 4th Gold medal and for me becoming my greatest Olympic hero. The incredibly close finish for Iain and Bart who perhaps a little disappointed, came home with silver to an incredibly proud team. We all have the utmost respect for 3 of our inspirational British and it is incredible to think I may have helped them along the way - if to make sure they took their coats with them!

So, were we celebrating, it is situation normal here.
While we have the first of our team medallists we still have several more to decide and we continue to keep the routine the same...up bright and breezy at 0530 to classic Weymouth conditions

Princess Royal however, did visit us yesterday so not entirely no celebrating and business as usual. We toasted a drink to her and the medallists and some of our support staff were fortunate enough to go to the Trinity House boat Patricia to have dinner with her

Today we are again visited by further royalty with Princess Catherine out watching the racing and expected to pop in and say hi- which has got most of the boys a very very excited. Keep an eye on twitter later no doubt there will be a few comments

Weather conditions were unbelievably tricky yesterday making life very hard for the best sailors in the world to have a fair race on the Nothe course. No doubt there will be some questions asked of that course but no one can deny that the crowd on the Nothe headland has been phenomenal and the support has lifted some of our sailors through what so far has been a nail biting regatta.

Lets hear a cheer Nothe!
