What? About sailing, watersports, the RYA, or recognising achievement - YES

No, I think itís quite appropriate for them to let their members know that one of our own is up for selection so to speak, it would be remiss of them to keep it quiet.

That's up to each and every individual but its good to be aware. Although I can see some Ribnet members may not feel he is relevant to their lives he has done more for British sailing than most people and if youíre a sailor and British then he is worth considering.

Yeah, so i heard. Good on him, Hoy is a top bloke. Hamilton's perceived ruthless determination has lost him a little public admiration.

So, which Pussycat Dolls do the runner-ups get?

Aparently Ailnslie came in at 4th. much higher than I thought he would give the strenght of the competition.

Yes he is one of our most successful olympians with 3 gold and a silver at 4 games and I would argue that has had to work a lot harder for each of his medals than some of the guys who run one or two races against competition that i reckon i could keep up with. They run for 20/30 seconds or so on a flat unchanged surface and they've won a medal. We all know from being out there how unpredictable the sea can be and how the conditions for each race can be so different than the last.

Rant over but as you'll gather I don't think sailing gets the media coverage or credit that it deserves given its our most successful olympic sport for years and we are by far the most successful sailing nation in the world.
