There was much activity around the Guanabara Bay on Monday when the Rio sailing races were about to start. For instance, there had been three separate camps set up for training by the Americans at Rio. The camps were set up in the consecutive months of May to July. The camps were planned in a way that the tidal cycles would be similar at the time when the races would be on. This was done to ensure that the coaches and the teams would experience similar environment as would be when the races begin.
