A total of 26 nations will compete in sailing at the Lima 2019 Pan American Games after the regional body confirmed the distribution of country spots for the event.

Panam Sailing announced the countries would be sending 168 athletes and 120 boats to participate in the 11 events on the programme for the Games.

Argentina, Brazil, the United States and hosts Peru will each field a sailing team comprising 17 athletes.

Canada are due to send 14 competitors, while 12 will represent Chile.

The regatta is scheduled to take place in Paracas from August 3 until 10.
