Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona worked hard to increase spector involvement in the games bring the race areas near to the shore. At a stroke a run down quarter of the Catalan city was revitalised with the main Olympic Village just across the road from a vast new marina from which the public could view from platforms and the breakwater.

Barcelona was a Spanish fiesta, a host nation’s most fervent wishes come true: four gold and a silver from nine classes, which had grown thanks to the addition of a women’s Windsurfer event. The Spanish team started training at the venue early, even whilst the marina was being built. Big cash bonuses were on offer to the medal winners too. King Juan Carlos, himself a competitor in the 1972 Olympics declared the Games open and Luis Doreste swore the Olympic Oath on behalf of all athletes.

Spain was justly proud, with Teresa Zabell and Begonia via Dufresne taking gold in the Women’s 470 and Jordi Calafat and Kiki Sanchez in the Men’s fleet.
