Host of the 2016 Paralympic Games


Opening to sailors from around the world on September 7, 2016, the sailing venue in Rio de Janeiro is set against the dramatic backdrop of Sugarloaf mountain in Guanabara Bay. This will be the first summer games ever held in South America and possibly the last summer games to feature Paralympic Sailing.

Team USA 1 is vying to represent the United States in Rio at what may be the last sailing event to be held in a Paralympic Games until 2024.
