Best Answer

Great Britain is the most successful nation, having racked up the most amount of medals since Olympic sailing started in 1900. The most successful Olympic sailor is Denmark's Paul Elvstrom. He won the first of his four gold medals at consecutive Games in 1948. However, if Great Britain's Ben Ainslie wins Gold at London 2012 he will overtake Elvstrom with one silver and 4 consecutive golds.
