For many sailors in the programme the first goal is to qualify their nation for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The first chance for that is at the Finn Gold Cup in Takapuna in November 2015, where four countries will be allocated a place on the starting line in Rio.

Then there are regional qualifiers in Asia, South America, North America, Africa and Europe. Once the Olympic place has been secured, the next goal is training and taking part in events during 2016 up until the Olympic Games in August 2016.

The longer-term goal is for Tokyo 2020. Many of the sailors in the programme are on their first campaign, still under 21 year old and have a long and promising career ahead of them.

With five years to prepare, a medal in 2020 is a very realistic prospect. Do you want to go along for the ride?
