Optimist race for gold on the final day
Picture taken from the Hole in One - where else do you get the best pics of the lake?!!! *
The wind blew from the South and South West in gusts of up to 20knots which made for plenty of capsizing and eventful racing on the final day.

Best to stick to rowing. How this guy hits the ball with his hands back-to-front beats me...
