Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Test Event, Marseille, France.

Paris 2024

Qualification System

The Olympic Sailing Competition at Paris 2024 will feature ten (10) Events with a total Athlete quota of 330. Both Events and Athlete quota are equally split between men and women and an NOC may enter only one (1) boat per Event.

Athletes had at least three (3) opportunities to qualify their National Olympic Committee (NOC) for an Event in the Olympic Sailing Competition. Each NOC, in coordination with their national sailing federation, determine their own criteria and timeline for selecting which athletes will represent them in the Events the NOC qualifies.

The first opportunity was the Sailing World Championships, The Hague 2023; the Men’s and Women’s Dinghy 2024 World Championships is next; this was then followed by a qualifier on each of World Sailing’s six (6) continents in each of the ten (10) Events; and the final opportunity as the last chance regatta to be held in 2024 only a few months before the Games at the Semaine Olympique Francais.

As is customary, the host nation was eligible for direct entry in each Event, the IOC’s Tripartite Commission allocated Universality Places and for the first time, World Sailing Emerging Nations had an additional pathway to qualify for the Olympic Sailing Competition.

More than 250 boats will feature on the start lines of the Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition from 65 National Olympic Committees.
