With the exception of 1904 and possible 1916 sailing was always a part of the Olympic program. The Sailing program of 1980 consisted of a total of six sailing classes (disciplines). For each class seven races were scheduled from 19 to 29 July 1980 of the coast of Tallinn (district of Pirita, in that time an annexed part of the USSR at the Baltic Sea.

1980 Olympic Boycott

The 1980 Summer Olympics boycott of the Moscow Olympics was a part of a package of actions initiated by the United States to protest the Soviet war in Afghanistan.[1] The Tallinn boycott influenced most sailing events. e.g. In the Soling the Canadian team of: Bill Abbott jr., Bill Abbott sr. and Larry Abbott were absent. In several countries boycott parties or alternative sailing events, like a Flying Dutchman event in Luxembourg, were organized.
