London Olympics: SailingOne Olympic sport you definitely won't able to see in London is Sailing, which takes part from Sunday 29 July until Saturday 11 August in the testing waters of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour on the south coast of England in the delightful region of Dorset. There are 10 different Olympic Sailing events at London 2012 (six for men, four for women) involving an array of vessels, including dinghies, keelboats, lasers and windsurfing boards. The object of the events is to score fewer points by finishing higher, with the overall winner being the Individual or Crew with the fewest total points after the series of races. With changeable conditions and choppy open-water, Sailing can be unpredictable and cruel - but either way, the beautiful scenery of the Dorset coast should make it quite a spectacle. Hopes are high for the home nation: led by triple gold-winner Ben Ainslie CBE, Great Britain was the most successful nation in the Sailing competitions at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.
