On October 6 the 10 Olympic classes and three Paralympic classes begin their weeklong set of trials to determine who will represent the United States in China. Over the past couple Olympics, the U.S. has fielded a very experienced, mature team, but this time many of our sailors will likely be considerably younger, with several first time Olympians. I plan to visit each of the five venues, San Diego, Newport Harbor, Long Beach, Marina del Rey and Newport, R.I. filming for NBCOlympics.com and US Sailing. There are many tight battles and I'm sure it will come right down to the end. Our daily reports will be easy to find on the internet.
