Across the seven race series the racing was tight in light and tricky conditions. The 19 nations to qualify their nation from Santander 2014 (in nation order) are:
6. Czech Republic
10. Great Britain
14. The Netherlands
15. New Zealand
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.
