Four of the region's sailing Olympic competitors have been talking to Meridian about their medal hopes.
Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell, who are based in Portland, are two of Team GB's rising stars. The duo have only been competing together in the Men's 470 Class since 2009.
They made their debut that year in the 470 World Championships, bringing home a silver medal.
We also hear from 470 world champions Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark, also based at Weymouth and Portland. They are two of Great Britain's favourites to bring home Gold this summer.
