Already firmly established as one of the world’s premier Olympic Classes events, this year’s Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta carries even greater significance as the world’s best sailors battle for supremacy in the same venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  All 10 Olympic and three Paralympic classes are being contested across seven courses in Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour.
