Qualification System

The 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition will feature 380 athletes competing across 10 events.

National Olympic Committees (NOCs) may enter 1 boat per event with the host nation directly qualifying one place in each event. The remaining places are decided through a qualification system.

Qualification is worked out on a national basis and it is then up to the individual National Olympic Committees to decide which sailors they want to represent them at the Olympic Sailing Competition. To be eligible for selection by NOCs the athlete must have appeared on an official ISAF World Ranking list between 1 January 2011 and 1 July 2012.

Qualification Pathway

75% of each event's entry quota shall be qualified from the best ranked NOCs in each of the relevant events at the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

25% of each event's entry quota shall be qualified from each event's 2012 Worlds or other events sanctioned by ISAF, to finish by 1 June 2012.

Eligible NOCs may request invitations from the Tripartite Commission.
