The Olympic Sailing Competition takes place from 29 July to 12 August 2012 hosted at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy in Dorset, Great Britain.
Sailing made it’s Olympic debut in 1900 and has appeared at every Olympic Games since 1908. In 2012, 380 of the world’s best sailors will compete across ten events representing 63 nations.
There are five racing areas located in Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay. Each of the fleet racing events will complete a 10 race opening series before the final double points scoring Medal Race and the women’s match racing event will sail a full round robin before a knock out series to the final. All of the Medal Races will take place on the ‘Nothe Course’ directly in front of the spectator area.
