European Ranking Rules
European Ranking is based on official races results. Only official National and International races are valid for the ranking.
Points are assigned based on Category Results
– In case of single start for each category: ranking points are based on fleet results
– In case of fleet with multiple categories: race results and ranking points are based on race result excluding competitors of other categories.
Are determined using the “floating system”.
– National races: L (light), P (heavy) and F (women)
– National and international championships: A (light), B (medium light), C (medium heavy), D (heavy) and F (women)
The floating system is calculated to have men categories of equal number. If male competitors are not divisible by the number of categories envisaged, a draw is made to determine the category (or categories) that will have athlete/s in eccess. Women are not included in the calculation and are added to L or Yellow Fleet (Cat. A / B). Any late registration, received after the conclusion of at least one race, will not change the floating system.
Ranking Scoring Tables
Final result in an event, will assign the following points (regardless the number of entries):
|Category Result||National Races||National, Continental or World Championships|
There will be two separate ranking for men and women. Ranking score will be the sum of (max) best 4 scores for each competitor. In case of a tie (same total score) will be considered the first best discard and in case of further tie, the best result in the last race of the season. If a parity still exist, the younger sailor will prevail. Junior ranking will be extrapolated at the end of the season from the male and female ranking
