Instructions on how to submit results for the SSL Ranking

Attached is the template to use when submitting regatta results to be considered for the SSL Ranking.  As you know, any and all results can be submitted.  Please ensure to have skipper & crew names.

To avoid duplication, sailors must always use the same full name for each regatta, ideally the same name used for SCIRA registration, avoiding nicknames and abbreviations. Only in this way will the ranking be correct.

From 2019, a wide range of class race results will be gradually integrated into a weekly world ranking inspired by the ATP tennis ranking. At the end of the season, it will qualify the best in the world for the annual final of the circuit (with prize money), and every two years for the SSL Gold Cup. The SSL Global Ranking does not replace the rankings specifyc to each class but completes them, to offer a simple and attractive overview of inshore sailing to the general public; the SSL Global Ranking will bring together nearly 100,000 athletes in 2021 and will be used as a communication tool in 2019 to promote athletes and the sailing season.
