You wouldn't know that there is a thing called Olympic sailing from NBC's network coverage--which seems to think ther eis an unlimited audience appetite for gymnastics and swimming. But that's no surprise. Sailing is pretty niche, and it's also pretty boring for anyone who doesn't sail themselves.
So if you are a sailor you have to find your way through the back alleys of the internet to watch your sport. And US Sailing is there to help you, with this guide to watching Olympic Sailing.
And if you want to bitch and moan about the lack of respect that sailing gets (as well as see some good tips on how and what to watch), head on over to the Sailing Anarchy thread on the topic.
I'll leave you with the most important Olympic sailor out there, Ben Ainslie, who with a win in the Finn would exceed Paul Elvstrom as the greatest Plympic sailor EVER.
