DOG ASIDE:

Sailing/Yachting is an Olympic sport starting from the Games of the 1st Olympiad (1896 Olympics in Athens, Greece). With the exception of 1904 and possibly 1916….sailing was always a part of the Olympic program. The Sailing program of 1984 consisted of a total of seven sailing classes (disciplines).  For each class seven races were scheduled from 31 July 1984 to 8 August 1984 of the coast of Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California at the Pacific Ocean.  Los Angeles hosted the Olympic sailing competitions for the second time….having previously done so during the 1932 Summer Olympics. The sailing was done on the triangular type Olympic courses.
