Portsmouth, R.I. USA

The members of the 2005 US Sailing Team have been unveiled. The Team includes Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Champions, Olympic medallists and ISAF World Sailing Rankings number ones.
The US Sailing Team was created in 1986 to recruit and develop top sailors in the country for upcoming Olympic Games. It annually recognizes the top-five ranked sailors in each of the events selected for the next Olympic competition.

For the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, there are eleven events using the following equipment: 49er, 470 (Men and Women), Finn, Laser, Laser Radial, RS:X (Men and Women), Star, Tornado, and Yngling.

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. There is no team for the Windsurfing events.
