What is WADA?

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 2009-2012, Fundamental Rule 5, sailors are required to comply with the ISAF Anti-Doping Code, Regulation 21. The ISAF Anti-Doping Code follows the WADA Anti-Doping Code.

As sailing is an Olympic sport, ISAF is required to undertake doping tests. ISAF has sub-contracted WADA and WADA authorized organizations to undertake a certain number of in and out of competition tests each year.
