Ranking for Worlds & International Events

The ALCA will, as a default position, use the preceeding Australian Championship results as the basis of ranking sailors for any ILCA event which has restricted entry. 

For example the results of the 2008 Australian Championship at Blairgowrie will be used for all 2008 World Champinships and other 2008 restricted entry events (eg. European Championships).

Rankings will be allocated consecutively from the order of finishing positions starting at first place.

This applies across all the Laser rigs (ie. Standard, Radial & 4.7) and all the Laser categories (ie. Youth, Women, Masters etc).

On certain occasions alternative rankings may be used such as the ISAF World Championship when Yachting Australia selects the sailors for this event.   A separate Selection Policy would be published to cover these situtations.

Sailors please regularly check the ALCA website for any published Selection Policies which may relate to the event you are interested in.

Please be aware that events can become “restricted entry” at a very late stage (as was the case in the 2007/08 season) so if you are planning to compete internationally then also plan to go to the Nationals!
