It's so great isn't it? My brother competed in the Worlds in 49ers against them last year and they smashed him LOL.

:excite: Though I will admit that DH and I are completely stumped as to how the race works. All we see are lots of pretty boats about to crash into each other in lots of water. But Australia gets the gold although they crossed the line second (or was it third...)? Sounds good to me!

Yeah I don't get sailing either. But hey, if they say we won then I'm good with that. :lol:

They could have sunk the boat before the finish line and still won gold. All they had to do was attempt to finish.

Now that would have been a fun race! :D

From what I gathered, they had enough points to win. All they had to do was show up and cross the line at some stage to make it official.

But sadly with one rail down, and lots with clear or 1 time fault she would have to be exceptionally lucky for that many to have a rail down in the second round
