The light-wind specialists in the Swiss team took advantage of the conditions and achieved remarkable results such as in the RS:X male windsurfers Mateo Sanz-Lanz SUI on rank 8 after 2 heats in the fleet of the 40 world-best windsurfers. Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI, are despite of a missed start on rank 9 in the 470 women. The 17th place after two races in the 470 men is a good sign, that Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI have improved their light-wind skills. Not according to plan was the first day for Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI as 35th in the first race of the Nacra 17, but with rank 11 in the second race, they came back rapidly and are now 24th overall.

The bad news for Rio de Janeiro ahead of the 2016 Olympics keeps coming after scores of dead fish appeared in the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, the venue for the Games' rowing and canoe competitions. A CNN video report.
Last week, a video from newspaper O Globo showed the Brazilian 49er team Breno Osthoff/Rafael de Almeida Sampaio BRA crashing into trash floating on Guanabara Bay, the venue of the sailing competition. According to Osthoff, the impact was so great the boat was forced onto its side and non-reparably damaged.
Rio de Janeiro has pledged to reduce pollution in the notoriously fetid bay, but last month in an interview with the country's largest sports channel SporTV, Mayor Eduardo Paes admitted that the bay will remain mostly polluted for the games. And ISAF, responsible for the correct organisation of its sport, remains inactive. Nor has the water analysis promised on the occasion of the Olympic test event been published, nor have they reacted to the Brazilian Government announcement, that the promised cleaning would not be completed for cost reasons. A scandal !

He explains his 'stand-up-kite-surfing' ideas in a detailed video.
