Sailing takes part from Sunday 29 July until Saturday 11 August in the testing waters of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour on the south coast of England in the delightful region of Dorset. There are 10 different Olympic Sailing events at (six for men, four for women) involving an array of vessels, including dinghies, keelboats, lasers and windsurfing boards. The object of the events is to score fewer points by finishing higher, with the overall winner being the Individual or Crew with the fewest total points after the series of races.
