Sailors must register to be part of Sailor ID which creates a unique and personal World Sailing Sailor ID number. Once you have this, you can log on at www.sailing.org to update your biography or apply for a World Sailing Sailor Classification. To date, over 100,000 Sailor ID's have been assigned.
All sailors who are competing at World Sailing Graded fleet racing or match racing events must have a Sailor ID.
The Sailor Classification system provide events and classes with an international system of classification for sailors to provide a clear distinction between 'professional' and 'amateur' sailors. The Sailor Classification Code defines how sailors are classified.
It is the responsibility of the sailor to apply for a Classification and provide all information necessary to determine his or her Classification. Go to the Sailor Classification section to apply or renew.
Once you have a Sailor ID, you can create your own online Sailor Biography. Your Sailor Biog can include personal and general information, images, your campaign website and results. For sailors featured on the World Sailing Rankings, your biography will automatically include your results from World Sailing Graded events and your full Ranking history. You must always submit your Sailor ID at the event registration.
