World Sailing Rankings

Published on November 1st, 2022

The World Sailing Rankings seek to establish an order of ability based on the event results, with the rankings focused on the ten Olympic fleet racing classes and Open and Women’s Match Racing.

While the Match Race rankings haven’t been updated since April 2020 (yes, you read that right), World Sailing released on November 1 the final rankings of 2022 for the Olympic classes.

All Olympic Fleets, except the Mixed 470 which only became a graded event after Tokyo 2020, now carry two World Championships (200pts) in the ranking calculation with the remaining points accumulated from World Cups (200pts), other multi-class or Continental Regattas (100pts) and smaller, emerging and Regional Regattas (50pts).

Qualification for the 2023 Allianz Sailing World Championships, which will be held in the Netherlands and be the first and most significant national qualifier for the Paris 2024 Olympics, will be calculated using a combination of the 2022 Class World Championship results and the World Sailing Fleet Rankings (as of December 31, 2022).

The ranking system will have a revised model due to be launched in 2023 which is aimed to better balance the weighting of regattas to reflect and reward new and developing Regattas and support non-European sailors.

Errors must be received before 12:00 UTC on November 3 for the rankings to be re-calculated, thereafter the rankings will be Final until the next publication in early 2023. It is the responsibility of the Competitor and/or Event Organizing Authority to check and report any error.
