The Official World Sailing Rankings for Olympic Classes - Criteria for Ranked Events

The Grading Criteria for Ranked Events is defined in Regulation 27.1.

Sailors will only receive ranking points from events that fully comply with the Regulations.

The dates and grading will be confirmed by the WS Executive which will endeavour to avoid conflicting dates and to ensure the Regulations determining how many of each grade of event may take place per contintent for each class.

The following Grades apply:

  • 200-points - Sailing World Cup, Olympic class World Championships, Sailing World Championships;
  • 100-points - Olympic Class World Championships (not-compliant with 200-point criteria), Olympic class Continental Championships and Other major international events using Olympic equipment;
  • 50-points - Olympic Class Continental Championships, other international events using Olympic equipment (not compliant with 100-point criteria).

Additional criteria:

  • The Sailing World Cup Final is a 200 point event (from 2015 onwards)
  • Sailors may count 3 Sailing World Cup 200 point events (i.e. rounds and / or final)
  • Tie breaks should be broken by the rank of the relevant sailors in the last published rankings
  • Regional Games may be included as 100 or 50 point events. The major Continental Regional Games (Pan Am, Asian, All African, European, Oceania) will be 100 pointers, if they exist and if they include sailing.
  • At selected elite events nationality requirements will apply.

Following a Sail Rankings Sub-committee decision at the 2015 Annual Conference, sailors may count their two most recent world championship regattas to their rankings points total.

Sailors will be able to count points from two further 200 points with their remaining tallies coming from 100 or 50 point regattas. No sailors points tally can exceed 1,000 points.
