You’ll have ample opportunity to watch Olympic sailing this year, with regular online and television coverage of events.
Here’s the blurb from US Sailing:
Two-time U.S. Olympic Sailing medalist Randy Smyth will be joined by America’s Cup winner and veteran sailing commentator Gary Jobson in the NBC broadcast booth for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Jobson and Smyth will cover two classes per day during the live broadcast, which will be available on NBCOlympics.com. Replays of the daily program will appear online shortly after the conclusion of the live broadcast.
In addition to the daily live broadcast on NBCOlympics.com, a 30-minute recap of each day’s racing, also narrated by Jobson and Smyth, will appear on the MSNBC and CNBC television networks after the conclusion of racing each day. This program will include recaps from more classes than the two that were covered live each day. The precise broadcast schedule of this program has yet to be determined, but it will be aired daily between 1pm and 5pm Arizona Time from August 8th to August 18th (sailing competition dates).
Rio 2016 NBC sailing coverage will be produced by a team led by Chris Lincoln, a five-time Emmy award-winning director of live sports and entertainment programming, and the recipient of the IOC Golden Rings awards for his direction of the London 2012 Olympic sailing broadcast.
