Information

An exceptional fortnight at the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition showcased the sport to the world and to thousands of fans that lined up on the Nothe Spectator area. It started with a surprise as Jonas Hogh Christensen (DEN) took two bullets ahead of the home nation favourite Ben Ainslie (GBR) in the Finn and ended in high suspense as Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) took victory in a big wind Women's Match Racing finale.

Over 60,000 spectators enjoyed an Olympic day out in Weymouth and Portland on the Nothe where every class played to the crowd. Even more made the most of vantage points around the course to catch a glimpse of history being made.

Ben Ainslie (GBR) became the most decorated Olympic sailor of all time, Pavlos Kontides won Cyprus' first ever Olympic medal with silver in the Laser, Echegoyen shocked the favourites in the Women's Match Racing and China's Lijia Xu came out on top in an epic four way Laser Radial podium battle.

Three Australian gold medals and a silver saw the Aussies top the sailing Medal Table ahead of Spain who had two gold medals. Hosts Great Britain were shifted from top spot having finished at the helm three times in a row, nonetheless they medalled in five out of ten events for their silver lining.
