US Sailing and Miami Yacht Club have agreed to co-host the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing.

The 49er, Mixed 470, Men and Women's IQ Foil, and Men's and Women's Formula Kite racing will be held Jan 6-13, 2024, while the ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 classes will race Feb. 17-24, 2024. The racing will be held primarily on the Atlantic Ocean with course options on Biscayne Bay.

Tom Duggan, Principal Race Officer (PRO) for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, will serve as PRO for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing. The Notices of Race for these events will be issued by Aug. 1, 2023.

"We are honored to have the Miami sailing community and, in particular, Miami Yacht Club's patriotism and enthusiasm for supporting America's top sailing athletes and their journey to represent the U.S. at the Olympic Games Paris 2024," said Paul Cayard, executive director of the US Sailing Team. "The U.S. Olympic Team Trials are a competition which will test boat speed, focus, mental strength, the ability to win races, and the ability to sail consistently over a series of races, all of which are required to succeed at the Olympic Games."

The athlete selection procedures for the 2024 Olympic Games were drafted by US Sailing's International Selection Committee, which includes nine U.S. Olympians and is chaired by Olympic silver and bronze medalist, JJ Fetter. The selection procedures were approved by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and initially published in July 2022, with subsequent amendments to reflect this 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials announcement.

For the Women's Skiff (49er FX), late selection will be the combined results of the 2024 FX World Championships in Lanzarote, Spain from February 27-March 3rd and the 2024 Princess Sofia Regatta in Palma, Spain from April 1-6th.

For the Mixed Multihull (Nacra 17), late selection will be the combined results of the 2024 Princess Sofia Regatta and the 2024 Nacra 17 Europeans in La Grande-Motte, France from May 7-12th.

It should be noted that if an athlete/team both wins the qualification series for selection to the Olympic Test Event in Marseille in July 2023 and achieves a podium finish at that event, that athlete/team will qualify for Early Selection and be nominated as the representative(s) for Paris 2024, precluding a late selection regatta or regattas for that class.

Full Selection Procedures for the Paris 2024 Olympics can be found here.
