Tickets must be purchased through CoSport. CoSport is the only authorized Games ticket retailer in the United States. Tickets purchased through other avenues cannot be guaranteed.

As of Friday, live ticket sales had been scheduled to open tomorrow, on Tuesday, July 2. However, CoSport has delayed sale dates due to processing issues amid record-high demand. According the website, live sales are now scheduled to begin July 9 in the US and Europe and July 10 in Australia.

Once sales start on July 9, you will be able to find tickets on the site and purchase them immediately. CoSport only accepts Visa cards, as Visa is the only card accepted at the Olympic Games. Inventory will be sold in real time and can change at any time, so check available inventory posted online frequently. The site’s FAQ section contains helpful info.

The Tokyo 2020 Games will take place July 24-August 9; the Paralympic Games August 24-September, 6. Although rowing and canoeing are in for the 2020 Paralympics, sailing is out. Olympic sailing will be held in Enoshima Yacht Harbour. The big marina with views of Mount Fuji is 40 miles south of Tokyo’s Olympic stadium on Sagami Bay.

I need a new Latitude
The July issue is quite possibly our favorite Latitude 38 ever — especially Letters, which also has a sober discussion about readers' run-ins with white squalls, a continuing debate about the Oakland Estuary, and lots of musings about people's first boats, best boats, and last boats.
