The U.S. Olympic Sailing Trials were fascinating to follow, and the final result is a very strong U.S. team. Along the way there were some very tight competitions, particularly in the Laser, Laser Radial, Star, Tornado, RS X, and Sonar. Over the course of 12 days I had the chance to visit each of the six venues. At each stop I found the race management to be excellent. There were, however, very few spectators, which is a shame because the racing was great fun to watch.
