New Ranking Rules for World Masters Championships

Kirk Marcolina

There is a new ALCA ranking policy for Australian Laser Sailors who apply for entry to ILCA World Masters Championships. The new policy is can be viewed online here:  http://www.lasersdownunder.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/ALCA-Laser-World-Masters-Ranking-Policy.pdf
 
The new policy will apply for the September 2018 World Masters in Dun Laoghaire Ireland and ongoing.
 
Up until the 2017 Masters in Split Croatia all Australian masters applicants have been offered a place. With the increased popularity of the event, the desire to run Radial and Standard rig fleets at the same time, venue capacity and charter boat limitations some applicants will likely miss out in Split. Consequently it was considered by the ALCA that a fairer ranking system was needed.
 
The new ranking arrangements are based on results at Worlds, National and District Masters Championships rather than the old one which was based on the order of placement of online entry applications.
