The Weymouth Bay West course looks to be a little trickier than the courses further in, with more wind shifts, lifts and headers to deal with.

Boards aims to bring you up to the minute racing information, along with round up reports and interviews at the end of the day. Our live coverage, as ever at events, is reliant on the performance of wireless internet. We are assured that the internet will work in the harbour, but will not know until we get aboard the press boat and onto the harbour. If all goes well we will be able to bring you live information from every stage of the racing, if however technology lets us down we will bring you a full, in depth report once ashore. We will then adapt of coverage from then on in to make sure we can bring you as much information as possible.

Check out ‘The Three to Beat’ in the women’s fleet on the RS:X website, giving a run down of the top competitors in the female fleet and well as ‘Strength Spread Across the Fleet’ in the male fleet.
