We arrived at the Games site early on Monday and so had a little time to walk through the charming town of Weymouth before we staked our spot on the hillside to watch some amazing sailing. It was all dressed up in flags and finery for its Olympic visitors.
So, what's the magical town of Weymouth like?
'Weymouth is a seaside town in Dorset, England, situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast... Fishing and trading employ fewer people in the area since their peak in earlier centuries, but tourism has continuously increased its presence in the town since the 18th century and is now the primary industry.
They couldn't have picked a better spot for the racing. We loved it!
