The US Sailing Team annually recognizes the top five ranked sailors in each of the events selected for the next Olympic Sailing Competition. The US Sailing Team was created in 1986 to recruit and develop top sailors in the country for upcoming Olympic Games. For the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, those events are shown in the table to the right.

Rankings on the US Sailing Team are based on attendance and performance at qualifying events. Athletes who have qualified for the US Sailing Team are identified as strong contenders for an Olympic berth and, as members of the team, they will be assisted with coaching, training, and other benefits.
