Did you know?

  • There are 10 sailing events, six for men and four for women, in vessels from dinghies and keelboats to windsurfing boards.
  • Each event consists of a series of races. The final race is the medal race, for which points are doubled.
  • The winner of each race gets one point, the second-placed finisher gets two and so on. The individual or crew with the lowest points total is the winner.
  • Sailing was part of the first Olympics in 1896, but heavy winds forced the programme to be cancelled.
  • With 24 gold medals since the 1900 Games, Great Britain is the most successful sailing nation in the world.
