Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition qualification system published


The qualification system for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Qualification has now been published.

The Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition regatta venue is the Marina da Glória with racing taking place inside and outside the Guanabara Bay and will feature 380 athletes competing across the following 10 events:

Men's Windsurfer - RS: X
Men's One Person Dinghy - Laser
Men's One Person Dinghy (Heavyweight) - Finn
Men's Two Person Dinghy - 470
Men's Skiff - 49er

Women's Windsurfer - RS: X
Women's One Person Dinghy - Laser Radial
Women's Two Person Dinghy - 470
Women's Skiff - 49er FX

Mixed Multihull - Nacra 17: Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) may enter a maximum of one boat per event, a total of 15 athletes (eight men and seven women).

Qualifcation Pathway: 50% of the entry quota in each event shall be qualified from those best ranked NOCs in the corresponding events at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

The remaining places in each event shall be qualified from the 2015 Class World Championship and in a series of Continental Qualification Events sanctioned by ISAF, to finish by 1 June 2016 at the latest.

The inclusion for the first time by ISAF of Continental Qualification Events in the Qualification Pathway is an opportunity to develop sailing around the world and reflect the IOC Qualification System Principles. Key requirements of these Principles are to ensure the participation of the best athletes and ensure universality through continental representation.

Tripartite Commission Invitation Places allow NOCs which have traditionally sent small delegations to the Olympic Games to be represented at the next Games. For the first time ISAF has included four dedicated Tripartite quota places within the overall Athlete Quota providing an opportunity for those eligible NOCs to compete in the Men's and Women's One Person Dinghy events.

ISAF will inform NOC's and Member National Authorities (MNA's) of Olympic quota places following each qualification regatta.

All NOC's, including the host country must confirm to ISAF the use of all quota places by 1 June 2016. After this date the unconfirmed quota places will be allocated according to the principles set out in the Qualification System.

Full details of the Qualification System will also be available in French.
