    The US Sailing Team is managed by the United States Sailing Association (US Sailing), the national governing body for the sport of sailing and sailboat racing. The organization names the top Olympic class athletes to the team annually, through both event qualification and at the discretion of team leadership. In the process, they help these elite athletes with financial, logistical, coaching, technical, fitness, marketing, and communications support. Athletes travel internationally throughout the year to train and compete against the top athletes from other nations. The US Sailing Team has won more medals than any other country in Olympic Sailing history.
