Sailing and Sailboard were included as an Island Games sport from the Isle of Wight 1993 Games. They were then both dropped for the Goltand 2017 Games but included again in Gibraltar 2019. Ynys Môn have only ever entered the Sailing competition itself. The Sailing and Sailboard are not split into women’s and Men’s events but are competed in together.
