Method of Calculation

The World Sailing Rankings for Olympic Classes are administered by World Sailing. Every year in November the World Sailing Rankings Sub-Committee meet to review the method of calculation of the Rankings and to grade events to be included in the Rankings.

Each competitor counts their best 6 results over the previous 12 Months. They may however include the two previous annual World Championship results. The time period is calculated on a rolling basis from the date that rankings were published.

Of those six results, a competitor may count a maximum of 3 results from the World Cup.

Regattas meeting the criteria are awarded a grade by the Sail Rankings Sub-committee. The grades are either a 200-point event, 100-point event or a 50-point event. The World Cup rounds, Sailing World Championships and Olympic Class World Championships are typically 200-point events. Olympic Class World Championships (not compliant with 200-point criteria), continental championships (not held as part of a 200-point event) and other major international events using Olympic equipment are 100-point events.

Complete information about the Criteria for Ranked Events is defined in Regulation 27.1.

100% of competitors at a regatta receive ranking points with first place receiving 200, 100 or 50 points depending on the grade. The competitor with the highest total from six events is listed first in the rankings and so on.

The Sailing World Rankings are issued approximately nine times a year.

Any errors within the Ranking must be reported to rankings@sailing.org within 48 hours of release. It is the sailors' responsibilty to check their own ranking.

Ranking Points are calculated using the following method

Ranking Points = E(N-P+1)/N

Where

E = Event Rank
N = Number of Entries
P = Position in regatta
