Ranking for Entry for Upcoming World Championships
For the 2020 Men’s Standard and Radial and Women’s Radial World Championships to be held at Sandringham YC Victoria in February 2020 ranking for the limited Australian places will be made after the initial entries close which will likely be in October 2019. According to the ALCA ranking policy ranking (other than for Master’s events) will be according to places in the preceding National Championships which, in October 2019, will be the 2019 Australian and Oceania Championships in Devonport.
It is important for sailors who aspire to compete in the 2020 Victorian events to know that they will need to compete in the 2019 Nationals to be ranked in October 2019.
The Australian ranking for the 2020 Geelong Laser World Masters will be according to the ALCA Masters Ranking Policy which is at http://www.lasersdownunder.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/ALCA-Laser-World-Masters-Ranking-Policy.pdf . We expect to be able to offer places to all Australian Masters sailors who apply for this event so the ranking arrangements are less of an issue.
There is a post on the ALCA web site covering in some detail the ranking for 2019 and 2020 World Championship events. The post is at http://www.lasersdownunder.com/laser-world-championship-ranking-events/
