Sailing

First appearing in the 1900 Games, Sailing has been part of the Olympics for more than a century. With the weather being a major factor, not only do the athletes compete with other sailors, but they also need to take into consideration the wind and the tide. The course is triangular and the boats must pass various course markers. Because the boats are changing direction, different tactics — such as zig-zagging back and forth, or tacking, to sail into the wind — are required.

Seven different boats, ranging from windsurfers to 5-meter-long multihulls, are raced either single-handedly or in teams of two.

Sailing will take place July 25-Aug. 4.
