Light that torch

He was the star of the show in Weymouth last night when the British sailing team were paraded to thousands of spectators at the beach venue. Shortly before that he had been on television as part of the build up to the opening ceremony, just two engagements in a long list that has been running for many months, even years.

Today his string of duties continued with lighting the flame at the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy (WPNSA).

I’d say he’s probably keener than ever to get out on the water and get on with the racing – who can blame him.
