Sailing was an Olympic sport at the 1928 Summer Olympics. The Sailing program of 1928 consisted of a total of three sailing classes. For each class races were scheduled from 2–9 August 1928 on the Buiten Y near Amsterdam and on the Zuiderzee of the coast of Muiden.

Venue

Template:Infobox settlement

As venue for the Amsterdam Olympics the South Westerly part of the Zuiderzee was chosen. The organizing committee of the sailing event was the Koninklijk Verbond Nederlandsche Watersport Vereniging. The Olympic harbor Six Harbor was on the North shore of the Y just opposite of the Amsterdam Centraal railway station. The boats were moured in the so-called 'kinderkamer' of the harbor. The Six Harbor was in that time the location of the Koninklijke Nederlandsche Zeil- & Roeivereeniging. This resulted that al competing yachts had to go through the locks (Oranjesluizen) to enter the Zuiderzee. The courses of the 12' Dinghy were just outside the locks. For the 6 and 8 Metre the used courses were about 5 nm out of the locks, East of the Isle of Marken.

At that time the Zuiderzee had an open connection with the North Sea. The sea water was salt or at best brackish. Waves could be steep and short due to the shallow waters.

In 1932 a dam was built between the North Sea and the Zuiderzee and the Zuiderzee was called IJsselmeer. As result of this the lake contains fresh water. Inside the lake new land was reclaimed. At this moment the center of the 1928 6 and 8 Metre course is located in the city of Almere. Also the city of Amsterdam reclaimed land from the sea and moved towards the lake. When the sailors from the 1928 Summer Olympics could return to their venue they would hardly recognize it.
