Template:Infobox Olympic event

Sailing/Yachting is an Olympic sport starting from the Games of the 1st Olympiad (1896 Olympics in Athens Template:GRE). With the exception of 1904 and possible 1916 sailing was always a part of the Olympic program. The Sailing program of 1992 consisted of a total of ten sailing classes (disciplines). For each class races were scheduled from July 27, 1992 to August 4, 1992 of the coast of Barcelona, Spain on the Mediterranean Sea

Venue

Template:Infobox settlement 300px

According to the IOC statutes the contests in all sport disciplines must be held either in, or as close as possible to the city which the IOC has chosen. The weather conditions in Barcelona were found suitable for sailing. The waterfront of Barcelona was completely restructured for the Olympics. The Olympic port became one of the key Olympic areas of Barcelona.

The Olympic sailing competition was held in the Mediterranean waters outside the Olympic Harbor. The new harbor was designed to be the base for the Olympic sailors and a key factor in the opening up of the city to the sea. This was achieved by a Special Town Plan for the “Parc de Mar” Area including a harbor which satisfy the requirements of sailors and organizers. The new harbor serves after the Games as a marina.

A total of five race areas were created on the Mediterranean Sea. Template:Clear
