In the last few decades sailing has become one of the most prominent sports of the summer games. The sailing programme now includes 9 events including windsurfing for the men and 2 for the women, the 470 and windsurfing.Three events are competed for in pairs: the 470, the 49er and the star, which are fairly large, single hulled boats.The Tornado, which is also sailed by two people, is a catamaran, or twin-hulled craft.The Soling is a single hulled boat with a crew of three.Finally the Finn, the laser and the Europe are three events for solitary contestants in a light single hulled craft.The event was exceptional at the Sydney games because, for the first time, spectators did not have to pay to watch the events, which took place on the magnificent stretch of water in front of the famous Sydney Opera House. Usually, this sport takes place several dozen miles away from the host city and sometimes several hundred miles away, as was the case for the Munich games in 1972, when the sailing events took place in Kiel in the North of Germany.
