Kingston, Canada

The terrorist murder of nine of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics meant that the Montreal Games were held under the tightest security. Sailing took place in another Canadian province, Ontario instead of Quebec, at Kingston. In a bid to modernise Olympic sailing, two venerable keelboats were dropped, the Star and Dragon. In their places a modern, glassfibre, trapezing dinghy in the shape of the 470 designed by Frenchman Andre Cornu, and a multihull with the Tornado class.

The first 470 winner was West German Frank Hübner.
