RS:X Windsurfing: an Olympic adventure

All RS:X windsurfers dreaming of competing in Rio 2016 can already check the qualification system for the Olympic Games.

The Olympic Sailing Qualification has been published. The regatta venue is Marina da Glória, and all races will be run inside and outside the Guanabara Bay.

The RS:X division will be comprised of 36 males and 26 female windsurfers. Up to 380 athletes will be competing across 10 events.

Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) may enter a maximum of one boat per event, a total of 15 athletes (eight men and seven women).

In terms of qualification, 50% of the entry quota in each event shall be qualified from those best ranked NOCs in the corresponding events at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

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 1st June 2016 at the latest.

All details are available in the ISAF Rio 2016 microsite.
