What a day! Four Medal Races that have just taken place in Tokyo. Even if you can't get access to the TV coverage from the Sailing at Tokyo 2020, hopefully you've been able to watch the live tracking of the racing (or watch it later on record).

Out in Tokyo, sailing journalist Andy Rice will be running a Live Q&A call on Zoom this Wednesday, 4 August, at 2100 hours Tokyo time. That's 1400 hours Friday afternoon, Central European Time. [see details below]

Walking us through the data - which is absolutely fascinating when you really dig down into the detail - is two-time 49er Olympian and European Champion Marcus Baur.

Andy will be getting Marcus to take us through a race and show us what we can learn both in terms of tactics and boat speed from the GPS tracking data.

As ever on these calls, we will be looking at lessons learned from Tokyo, and what we can take from the Games and how to apply to our own sailboat racing campaigns.

Here's how to get on the call. It's free to join:

There you'll find the Zoom Meeting details and you can sign up. Numbers are limited though, so get there early.

If you can't make it on to the call live, post your questions here and we'll put them to Marcus Baur:
