Sailing

For many people, their first introduction to sailing comes from watching it at the Olympics. Sailing, or yachting to be more precise, first appeared at the Olympic Games in 1900, making it one of the oldest sports on the Olympic programme, where it has been ever-present since its reintroduction in 1908. The sport’s name changed from ‘yachting’ to ‘sailing’ at the Sydney Games in 2000.
