My team, known as the PDQ Geckos, is as follows:

Group A: Australia, China Women

Group B: Hungary, Spain, USA Women

Group C: Austria, Canada, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Sweden

Group D: Iceland, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Venezuela


So ehBeth, did the Speedo wearing Swedes win, or were they too bloated with hot chocolate?

I've always known you have good taste.

The Swedes did win a gold in one of the sailing events in 1976.

I was just errrr awed by them. More so than by the Royals who were on-site to open the event. Prince Philip didn't wear his Speedos.

Somewhere in the hamburgers' basement there's a brochure from Tallinn, Estonia, with the then-mayor's business card clipped on - with an invitation to go to their sailing Olympics.

I was very wide-eyed most of the time.

I had different eyes in the '84 Olympics in LA. A neighbpr (...) was after my husband, seriously, and hovering. I won, you might say, but the women's marathon we watched in the marina had that piquant component to it, plus the other drama having to do with the marathon itself..
