History The use of wind-powered sailboats for trade, transport, fishing and warfare has been instrumental in the development of civilization throughout history. As a sport, sailing, or yacht racing, began in 1851 with a race around the Isle of Wight, and was contested as an Olympic sport beginning with the Paris 1900 Games.
How it Works There are 10 sailing events (six for men, four for women) featuring a variety of boats, from windsurfers to dinghies to keelboats. Each event consists of a series of races around a course with points awarded in each race according to finish position. The final race is called the medal race and counts for double points to the sailor’s total.
