A Paralympic medal has eluded Britain's sailors since the sport first joined the full Paralympic Games programme in 2000.

The six-strong Paralympics GB sailing squad will be looking to change that statistic on the waters of Portland Harbour at London 2012.

The team - Helena Lucas, Alexandra Rickham, Niki Birrell, Hannah Stodell, John Robertson and Stephen Thomas - have high hopes for medals this time.

Racing will take place from Saturday, September 1, to Thursday, September 6. For the full racing schedule click here.

The Paralympic sailing is a non-ticketed event with no official spectating area but there are a few great vantage points around Portland Harbour.
