All the Olympic Classes are sailing except the Yngling, the Tornado and the Star, with question marks surrounding the Olympic status for the Yngling and Tornado class for 2012. Next year the Skandia Sail for Gold regatta will become part of the ISAF World Cup series, and is expecting in excess of 600 entrants from around the World.
