Sailing

Information

Sailing was first contested as an Olympic sport at the 1900 Paris Games. Since then, the classes of boats allowed to compete have continually evolved to reflect advances in yacht design and technology. Equipment advances over the past 20 years have created a trend towards smaller and lighter craft, placing ever greater demands on both the athletic and technical capacities of the sailors.

The sport is organized under a single set of rules for racing published by World Sailing. Olympic racing is now conducted with boats categorized into one-design classes based on similar weights and measurements.

Races are sailed in what is known as a fleet racing format: fleets of equally-matched boats racing around the same course area at the same time. Courses are designed to incorporate a variety of different sailing angles: upwind, downwind and reaching.

There were two new additions for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The 49erFX skiff has been introduced for women's sailor and mixed multihull for male and female sailors to compete side by side.
