2 images Created 3 Jun 2012
The waters of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour will be filled with the stars of sailing over the next couple of weeks as the team's training camps at the 2012 Olympic venue turn serious with the final pre-event - Skandia Sail for Gold. The annual event will this year be held from the 3rd to the 9th of June at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy and will feature almost all of the medal contenders for the upcoming Games. The 523 entries from 59 nations will feature 723 athletes and 249 coaches, and while numbers might be down on last year - when many nations used the event to select their Olympic teams - there's no doubt that the cream of world sailing will be racing at Skandia Sail for Gold.
