Star World Championship and Olympic Qualification Regatta
Following some problems with the scoring of the Star World Championship that delayed the final results, results have now been released and those nations who have qualified for an entry to the Olympic Sailing Competition confirmed.
Although still to be ratified by ISAF, the following four nations have qualified: Spain, Denmark, Germany and Canada. The ISAF ratification will confirm that the athletes who qualified the above nations meet the nationality requirements as set out in the Qualification System for the 2004 Olympic Sailing Competition.
The results mean that Spain and Germany now join Australia, France and Great Britain as the only nations to have qualified in every sailing event in Athens. They will be sending a full team of sailors along with Greece, who as host country automatically qualify in every event.
