Sailing 2016 Discussion Thread

Entry list for final qualification events (European, African and Asian regattas) are out

Europe and Africa http://www.trofeoprincesasofia.org/en/default/races/race-inscriptions

Asia http://www.ac2016.asiansailing.org/index.php/competitor-information/who-is-registered

 

So, who is the biggest hero of this? It's Algeria. :d They have very wisely used the fact that ISAF has introduced continental Olympic quotas for the first time and the fact that some sailing classes are completly non-existent in Africa. They are the only African nation in women's 470, men's 49er,  women's 49er FX and mixed Nacra 17, so they are guaranteed all of those quotas! They will compete in 7 out of 10 classes in Rio (11 sailors in total). To put it in the perspective, Algeria has never qualified a single sailor for the Olympics before. :lol:

In 2015 was World championships for all classes, in the same date and place, such championships are held only once by 4, in pre-olympic year, I think. In all other years are separate world championships in each class.

The danish 49er with Jonas Warrer and Anders Thomsen which was set to go to the Olympics has broken up.

Instead Jonas Warrer will be trying with a collaboration with Christian Peter Lübeck who was a part of the Nacra 17 ending up in 2nd place in the national qualification.

This makes the danish participation in the class in Rio uncertain, as the national federation will not send a boat if it isn't decently competitive.

The danish double in 49er FX will be Jena Mai Hansen and Katja Salskov-Iversen as wikipedia says? What you think about the choice?

As long as they have already paid their entry fee before the regatta commences, Algeria will guarantee in 7 out of 10 classes for the Games due to continental selection; otherwise, their places will be distributed to the next NOC for each class from the 2015 Worlds (similar to the case occurred at the ISAF World Cup in Melbourne).
