Olympic Sailing

All nine classes are ISAF-approved for Olympic competition; have international organizations and controlled racing rules; and represent the best competition in the sport. The term "one-design" refers to a class boats' strict standards for materials and methods used in construction. Ultimately, each Olympic boat -- built only by ISAF licensed boat builders to precise size and weight specifications -- is identical to another in its class. The purpose of one-design class racing is to allow the best sailor -- not the best boat -- to win.
