For those who haven't seen this, it looks pretty promising...

Video is fantastic.... Apparantly the jobson/Smythe audio feed has a problem for today at least.

The RSX's raced and GBR dominated.... Wow watching how dynamic the leech is on the board i amazing.

Woman's radials are up now for race 2. Paige Railey is in 15th after one.

Decent breeze.... water quality... doesn't look horrible.

Wow, that was great. Watched race 1 and race 2 for the nacra 17 on the live stream. No commentators, but I actually enjoyed it. Big shifts and plenty of lead changes made it very interesting.

Undoubtedly, it was far more enjoyable because there were no commentators.

I couldn't follow the tracker. I kept getting Java error messages that didn't make sense (install latest and enable, which I did)...

Is there a link to video replays?

I found replays, but only on the App. You need to enter your cable provider info (need your bill with you). They also require access to your phone's location, photos, phone number (and number of anyone you're talking to), etc. And, they bombard you with ads.

Ok, the last part I can accept, but REALLY??? What the hell are they thinking with all of the rest of it, just to watch sports??????????

Mike, I've got an extra tinfoil hat you can borrow. I share your sentiments exactly.

Well, I suppose a tinfoiler would probably say that the government is behind it. I'm not ready to be that paranoid, but I really don't want to derail this thread...

Anyone have a status on the first race today?

BBC has pretty good coverage (use Chrome+Hola plugin).
Shirley Robinson and Ian Walker are excellent commentators.
The 3D tracker is terrible though, bouys and courses are all wrong making it basically useless.

AUS and GBR are tied for first... USA is sitting in 16 behind the French (Besson)

It looks like his back injury has taken a big bite in their performance. That has to suck after dominating for 4 years of the quad!

After how many races, Mark?

I haven't been able to use the tracker, but in the video, the laylines, etc. were WAY off.

I enjoyed the 25 minutes or so that I got to see, I guess those of us who do not subscribe to cable are SOL.

49er's are in sequence after a weather delay of a couple of hours. Breeze looks decent enough for some good racing.

This is what happens when you send a sports reporter to report on sport he knows nothing about;
