Sailing Commentating…As It Should Be

If you’ve never seen a Women’s Olympic Sailing Event, Francis Higgins is here to teach you the in’s and out’s of it. The funny man from Ireland actually knows just as much about sailing as the average American, which is zilch. His hilarious audio was dubbed over the actual Olympic broadcast, but the IOC was still somehow able to take it down from Vimeo after it went viral and hit 500,000 views. Well now it has resurfaced and you can check it out above. Just to be sure, this is only satire. But you may learn a thing or two about sailing anyway (e.g.  the boats are called Lasers- obviously having no resemblance to the “la-ser” /?l?z?r/:  an intense ray of light that’s traveling- well at the speed of light”).
