At the Helm - Dean Brenner

I was sitting in my office in Wallingford, CT every day last week, trying to get some work done. But when our team is competing at an event, it's really hard for me to concentrate on anything else. We're in the home stretch now, our Olympic Team Selection is underway, and every event matters. And, it's a lot easier to follow the action from afar now than it ever has been before.

Our team's efforts to connect with you through blog posts, Facebook, Twitter and our website are better than ever. We're bringing you video clips, just-stepped-off-the-boat audio interviews, photos, up-to-the-minute results and updates... it's great to see. Over the next 16 months we'll be doing even more to bring the action straight to you as we gear up for the Games in 2012.

Coach Boat - Kenneth Andreasen

In Palma we had five top-6 finishes, which shows really good improvement. This was the toughest competition that we have met so far, this year. All of the world's top sailors were there and being able to post results like that is a great sign of our progress. We still have 16 months until we look to see our sailors on the podium in Weymouth and clearly there is some work to be done.

At last week's Princess Sofia Trophy in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, the 2008 World Champions finished 5th overall, with a notable second-place in the final medal race.
