The 2016 ASAF championship in Abu Dhabi is the first ever Asian Championship of the 49er Class.  It is also an Olympic qualifier, meaning that there is one berth for each of the 49er and 49erFX that will be won by the top team not already qualified for Rio. The event is a multiclass event, and along with 49er and 49erFX there is Laser, Radial, RSX: Men & Women.  It is an Olympic qualifier for all of them as well. From Asia, Singapore has already qualified for the Olympics in the 49erFX, so only the other nations may qualify.  Japan will be the favourite in the 49er, having a long history of Olympic performances already under their belt, but it is sure to be a close regatta all the way through.
