Nick Dempsey Interview

Windsurfer Nick Dempsey moved into the RS:X Men’s medal positions courtesy of a thrilling photo finish on day four of the Olympic Sailing Regatta .

He said: “I didn’t know I had won [the last race] until I got ashore about half an hour later. It was so close on the line, I was like ‘Oh, ah, well, that was close’. I even had a chat with him [the Greek sailor] coming in and he said he didn’t know. Those photo finishes are always good, I’m just glad it was the right way around.

“It was pretty difficult [today] so it was nice to come out with a nice couple of solid races. It’s the first four races of the Olympic Games and there are a few people who have already come unstuck and that’s their Games over. It’s just about being in it, ready to turn it on in the second half of the week.”
