Racing World Ranking Point System

Written by Editor on . Posted in Articles

Formula Kite World Rankings 2015 ff

The ISAF grading criteria will apply for Formula Kite events. A brief overview can be found here 

More information on the ISAF world rankings can be found here: http://www.sailing.org/rankings/fleet/how_does_it_work.php

Qualification System for the 2015 ISAF Sailing World Cup Grand Final: http://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/2015QualificationSystemSWC-%5B17739%5D.pdf

 

KiteFoil and TT:R World Ranking Point Calculation 2014 ff

KiteFoil events are graded as follows:
Grade 1: prize money of 20000 and more
Grade 2: prize money of 10000 and more
Grade 3: prize money of 5000 and more
Grade 4: less than 5000 prize money

For TTR (Twin Tip Racing) events, any international tour event or events held in conjunction with major Formula Kite or KiteFoil Grade 1 and 2 events, will be graded 50 points. All other events (nationals, weekend warriors) will be graded 20 points.

Points towards the world ranking are calculated as follows:

X = F x (N+1-Rank)/N

Explanation:

X = Ranking scored by a competitor at an event


N = number of competitors

F = Basefactor (200, 100, 50 or 20)



KiteFoil and TT:R World Rankings from 2015 onwards

For the TwinTip:Racing World Ranking, each competitors best 5 results within the last 12 months will be counted, for the KiteFoil World Ranking each competitors best 3 results. The actual ranking position will be based on the sum of ranking points. The competitor with most points is the first.

The ranking list is a continuous system. After 12 months the points are deleted.

Note: The world ranking system for Formula Kite is likely to be transformed into the ISAF Olympic Classes World Ranking from 2015 based on the inclusion of Formula Kite in all ISAF major events (Sailing World Cup, Sailing World Championships).
