The ticket application process is open and the clock continues its count down to the 2012 Olympics. Olympic sailing manager Stephen ‘Sparky’ Park talks to Matt Sheahan about an event, that for the first time will be charging people to watch. What does this mean for spectators, the sailors and the sport? Sparky also talks about British team prospects for the big event.

We also hear from Thomas Colville on Sodebo, Brian Thompson on Bank Populaire’s failed Jules Verne Attempt and Guido Belgiorno-Nettis on the Farr 40 worlds.
