Enjoy the very best of sailing across ten different categories
Sailing has been a part of the Games since the year 1900. In the 2020 Games, there are 350 athletes competing in ten different categories. These include RS:X (windsurfing), Laser (1-person dinghy), Finn (1-person heavyweight dinghy), 470 (2-person dinghy), 49er (skiff), and Narca 17 (a mixed multihull, and the only category to feature mixed-gender teams). Whichever type of sailing you go to see, it’s always a thrilling affair, as the competitors jostle for position while also doing their best to harness the powerful winds as best they can. Athletes have to make their way through marker buoys along a triangular course, contending with an upwind section, downwind section, and crosswind section. It’s a phenomenal test not only of stamina and strength, but also the mental agility needed to adapt to the ever-changing forces of nature.

Don’t miss the thrilling sailing medal races at the 2020 Games in Tokyo
The races of 2020 are set to take place between the 27th July and the 6th August. Each category features a series of races, with points awarded depending on the finishing positions. Although all the races are exciting to watch, the medal races are of course the most spectacular. Not only because the finalists are competing for the coveted medals, but because the medal race takes place closer to the shore where the winds are more unpredictable. In Tokyo, the sailing events are taking place at the Enoshima Yacht Harbor on Enoshima, a historic venue that was built for the Games of 1964. If you’re looking forward to other events such as the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Rowing, 2020 Games in Tokyo: Canoeing, or 2020 Games in Tokyo: Modern Pentathlon, you’re sure to enjoy the sailing event.
