Unfortunately there is limited coverage on the BBC, they decide what we see.
Eurosport/Discovery+ who are the main European rights holders for broadcasting the Olympics this year and will be covering Sailing from day 1. You can get this via Sky or a one off fee I believe of around 5

That BBC is no longer fit for purpose.

Today they have shown GBR beat Japan at Rugby sevens at least twice, talking for at least half the day, appalling, sports have been going all through the night.

All Olympic rights are now owned Eurosport. They have given a very limited access to all the European countries that require free to air access.   Just two live streams , of which only one can be be shown on a free to air channel at anyone time. These companies have no control of what is being shown on the streams either . 
We live in a new world where the new streaming services have very large and deep wallets.

With this awful coverage sailing will disappear even more

Weymouth coverage was amazing, Rio was poor but this so far is just awful

Barely worth watching the snippets that do appear

Here is a link for race schedules:
 https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/olympic-games/en/results/sailing/olympic-schedule-and-results.htm

Here is a link to the coverage, starting each day at 0350 BST on Discovery + :
 https://www.discoveryplus.co.uk/olympics/sport/sailing

Cost is 6.99 for a month

I'm not promoting this just clearing up possible confusion about the options.

BTW I enjoyed watching the 7's Rugby on the BBC, but it was just a few minutes. Then into the studio to talk for ages about other sports. 
If no one can go to the stadia or event locations and no one can easily watch on TV is the Tokyo Olympics really happening? I think it will be remembered as the fake or virtual Olympics. Shame for the athletes.

For 6.99 you get all the sports on your PC, just watched the amazing finish in 49er race 1

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

You have to draw the line somewhere, Netflix, amazon etc, goes on and on, sports bodies need to balance finances with attracting new people, marginal sports in particular.
