Dutch windsurfer Dorian van Rijsselberge, after dominating the men's boardsailing event at the 2012 Olympics, was celebrated by a loud and enthusiastic Dutch crowd of 6,000 in the Holland Heineken House at Alexandra Palace in London. Here he is seen crowd surfing to the bar. Photo courtesy of the Holland Heineken House.

Just a reminder that sailing is fun, and racing is to be organized fun. Beware of racing becoming too competitive, because it is not hard to make racing into organized fun that requires a heck of a lot of work. And soon it is no longer fun. These boats look like they have the fun/work ratio in a safe place. Photo by Jody Sallons-Day.
