QualificationEdit

The number of sailors competing has been reduced from 380 to 350, with an equal distribution between men and women.[2]

The qualification period will commence at the 2018 Sailing World Championships in Aarhus, Denmark. There, 101 places, about forty percent of the total quota, will be awarded to the highest finishing nations. Six places will be available in the men's Laser and women's Laser Radial classes at the 2018 Asian Games and 2019 Pan American Games, whereas sixty-one more will be distributed to the sailors at the World Championships for all boats in 2019. Moving towards 2020, continental qualification regattas will be held to decide the remainder of the total quota, while two spots each in the one-person dinghy classes will be granted to eligible NOCs through the Tripartite Commission Invitation.[3]

As hosts, Japan has been guaranteed one quota place in each of the ten classes.[4]
