The story of the Finn Class at the 2012 Olympic Games
Over the course of the 2012 Olympics the Finn class released a series of press releases consisting of previews, interviews, race reports and wraps, all telling the sailors stories on and off the water. These press releases have been edited and compiled to provide a seamless story of the Finn class event at the London Olympics, together with many great photos from before and during the event.
The London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition at Weymouth & Portland was a brilliant showcase for the sport of sailing.
