World Sailing's Role

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was established in 1999 as an international independent agency which works towards a vision of a world where all athletes compete in a doping free sporting environment.

In accordance with The Racing Rules of Sailing 2021 - 2024, Fundamental Rule 6, sailors are required to comply with the World Sailing Anti-Doping Code. The World Sailing Anti-Doping Code follows the WADA Anti-Doping Code.

World Sailing is responsible for conducting all aspects of Doping Control in compliance with the Code, International Standards and Anti-Doping Rules. World Sailing has delegated its adjudication responsibilities and Results Management to the CAS Anti-Doping Division.

International-Level Athletes, those racing at Olympic events, Youth and Para Sailing World Championships, America's Cup and The Ocean Race, require any Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) to be issued by the World Sailing.

Athletes who have been issued a TUE from their NADO (National Anti-Doping Organization) are required to forward a copy to World Sailing.

World Sailing will respect the TUE decision of other Anti-Doping Agencies provided that such TUE decisions have been reported in accordance with Article 5.4.
