Team USA & NBC Paralympics Broadcast

There will be no live video coverage of the Paralympic sailing completion provided by the Olympic Broadcast Service (OBS).

OBS will gather footage of Rio 2016 Paralympic sailing for later use by international broadcasters, and it is possible that footage will be used in recap programing by U.S. rights holder NBC Sports (or by Team USA’s communications team).

At this time, US Sailing has not been provided with information about when footage of the sailing competition could be broadcast either on TV or online. We will, of course, keep our fans fully updated by email and though social media as more information becomes available.
