Brazil has won a total of 16 medals in Sailing during the modern Olympic Era.  Nine of these medals are accounted for between Robert Scheidt (4) and Torben Grael (5).  Grael won two gold medals, a silver medal, and two bronze medals between 1984 and 2004 in the Star and Soling classes.  He is currently the only sailor in Olympic history with five total medals.  Scheidt won two gold medals and two silver medals between 1996 and 2008 in the Laser and Star classes.  He is one of the favorites for the upcoming 2012 games, in Weymouth, to take home gold in the Star class.
