US Olympic Sailing procedure flawed?

US sailors Erin Maxwell and Isabelle Kinsolving only have to finish eighth out of the 10 boat 470 Worlds Medal race in a few hours time to win the 2008 World title in Melbourne Australia.

USA's Beijing Olympics 470 Women's representatives Amanda Clark and Sarah Mergenthaler have some work to do before the Qingdao regatta in August as they finished 12th in the 29 boat fleet. Clearly US SAILING's single regatta Olympic selection procedure will be under review, before the 2012 Games. It is out of step with that of all the other top sailing nations. - Sail-World
