I've featured plenty of Olympic 49'er videos on this blog, mostly of the watery, down-the-mine, disaster variety. This one is different. The sailor's monologues nail the difficulty of sailing a high-performance dinghy, coupled with the obsessive grind of an Olympic campaign. The videography is beautiful. There is the requisite blasting around but there is also a sequence of these two caught in North American squall; the blast and then the calm and the torrential rain afterward.
