With the Olympics now on the horizon Skandia have teamed up with award-winning photographer, Robert Wilson to capture some amazing images of Skandia Team GBR, the British Olympic and Para-Olympic sailing team on the waters around Weymouth and Portland.

Wilson has caught members of Skandia Team GBR including Norwich's Nick Dempsey, RS-X; Andrew Simpson, Star class; Paul Goodison, Laser; Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark, 470; Stephen Park, team manager and Ben Ainslie, Finn at key moments in their training over the last two years and just before the start of the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta 2012.
