Sailing in London Olympic

Sailing is the propulsion of a vehicle and the control of its movement with large foils called sails. By changing the rigging, rudder and sometimes the keel or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails in order to move the vessel relative to its surrounding medium and change its direction and speed.

Sailing is an interesting and exciting game to watch. So, London Olympics 2012 has also included this game as a competition. You can watch 2012 Olympics where sailing competitions are scheduled to be held from 28th July to 11th August Weymouth and Portland. In London Olympics, ten gold medals will be awarded and 380 athletes are expected to take part in the competition. You can watch 2012 Olympics; where the sailing classes have two changes from the Beijing 2008 events as the women's Match Race competition replaces the Yngling competition and the Tornado Class Catamaran competition has been dropped. 700 athletes and 550 officials will stay at the Sailing Village during 2012 Olympic Games, with approximately half that number using the accommodation during the Paralympic Games. 

In London Olympics, fifty seven nations have qualified for the sailing events. The only countries to have qualified in all events are France, New Zealand, the USA and the hosts, Great Britain. You can watch London Olympics through live streaming or also you can watch Olympics online directly from the Internet.
