Sailing made its Olympic debut in 1900 in Paris and has appeared at every Olympic Games since 1908. Sailing first appeared as a Paralympic demonstration sport at Atlanta 1996 before being included as a full medal sport for Sydney 2000. The sport’s name was changed from ‘yachting’ to ‘sailing’ at the Sydney 2000 Games.

Modern technology has turned sailing into a more engaging contest, first through changes to the competition itself and also by altering the ways it can be watched.
