Ranking system explained :
The original Ranking System was devised in the mid-1970s and has served well over the years. In 2009, however, a number of changes were made to the ILCA Entry Process for the World and European Championships, including entering on line. Over the years a few other minor modifications have been made to take account of changing circumstances and ILCA interpretations.
In late August 2015 the Ranking System was further updated to take account of various ISAF changes and an opportunity was taken to revise and clarify a number of aspects, while still retaining the principles set out in the early years.
