Windsurfing-Olympics-2016-Rio-Brazil-Sailing-RSX

Windsurfing may be one of the smaller events at the Rio 2016 Olympics, but that doesn't mean it won't draw big viewing figures around the UK. But when will I be able to watch the windsurfing events, I hear you cry?

The Games kick off on Friday 5 August 2016 with the Opening Ceremony. The BBC will be broadcasting all of the events (including running, cycling, etc.) live from Rio across TV, radio, online and the BBC Sport mobile app.
