US Sailing, the national governing body for the sport, has named 21 Olympic-class athletes to the 2018 US Sailing Team
The national team is selected annually and is comprised of the top sailors competing in the events selected for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
The roster is assembled from a combination of sailors who qualified based on results at the 2017 World Championships, the World Cup Series Miami 2018, and additional accomplished athletes who receive discretionary selection from the Chief of U.S. Olympic Sailing, two-time Olympic Champion Malcolm Page (Newport, R.I.). Through the US Sailing Team and its sponsors, athletes on the Olympic path receive financial, logistical, coaching, technical, fitness, marketing and communications support.
Note: No Women’s 470, Men’s RS:X or Women’s RS:X athletes have been added to the 2018 US Sailing Team to date, though it is possible that others could be added later in the year.
