    Rob: Wow, the greatest Olympic sailor of all time!!
    Ben: Yeah.

    Love the sailing- cant believe the tactics for the British girl in the laser to get a medal were to a) cause a false start by driving too many boats over the line, then b) make her rivals get disqualified on the restart!

    SAILING (13:00-13:20): Nick Dempsey, men's RS:X Windsurfing

    Nick Dempsey and Bryony Shaw reach their medal races - possibly the last-ever windsurfing races at an Olympics, with the sport set to be replaced by kiteboarding for Rio 2016. Dempsey lies in silver medal position going into the decider, with the gold already secured by Dutchman Dorian van Rijsselberge, but Bryony Shaw will struggle to match her bronze from Beijing as she is down in seventh place (14:00).
