International FISLY Ranking

Select a class:


On the occasion of its 60th anniversary, FISLY is setting up an international ranking of pilots called "International Ranking".

The objective is to highlight the major competitions and to create throughout the year an emulation between pilots from all over the world in each class by valuing their performances in national, international, continental and world championships.

Art 1 Period

The International Ranking takes place between the first day of the reference Continental or World Championship and the day before the next Continental or World Championship.

Art 2 Participants

All pilots, regardless of age or sex, who have a national licence and a FISLY ID valid for at least part of the total duration of the International Ranking and who have taken part in at least one national, international, continental or world competition taking place during the ranking period, are ranked by class.

Art 3 Competitions

The following are taken into account :

  • National level competitions as defined by the federation of the country in which the competition takes place.
    Foreign pilots may take part in these competitions and are included in the ranking.
  • International competitions defined as such by FISLY and which include at least pilots from 3 different nations.
    If this criterion is not met, the competition will be downgraded to "national level competition".
  • Continental and World Championships as defined by FISLY.

Art 4 Value of the competitions

Competitions counting towards the "International Ranking" have a value defined according to 2 criteria :

  1. The type of competition :
    • national race coefficient 1
    • international race coefficient 2
    • continental or world championship coefficient 2
  2. The number of pilots having participated in at least one round of the said competition determines the number of points to be distributed according to the following rule :
    • 1st = number of participants
    • 2nd = number of participants -1
    • 3rd = number of participants -2
    • last = 1
    • One run is enough to score points for the competition.
    • The total number of heats run does not affect the value of the competition.
    • In the event of an absolute tie, the pilots ranked exaequo obtain the same number of points, the next driver obtains the points allocated to the next X+1 place (for example if 2 3rd exaequo, then the next driver is 5th).
    • In a team competition it is the number of crews that is taken into account, with the members of each crew
      obtaining the total number of points allocated to the place of the crew.
    • Co-pilots must provide their official personal sail number to be counted.
  3. Several competitions may take place on the same dates.

The final number of points awarded for a competition is as follows :

  • 1st = number of participants x coef
  • 2nd = (number of participants -1) x coef
  • 3rd = (number of participants -2) x coef
  • last = 1 x coef
  • travel bonus: if a driver travels to a competition venue located more than 500km from his or her place of residence in a country other than that in which his or her licence was issued, he or she will be awarded a bonus of 5 points, which will be retained even if the race is not held.

Art 5 Collection of results

Within 14 days, the competition organisers will send the FISLY (in Excel or open office calc (.xl, .xls, .odt) format) the gross results of the competition by class, mentioning :

  • the type of competition (nat, inter, cht)
  • the dates and venue of the competition
  • the classes taking part
  • the actual number of participants per class
  • their places
  • the identity of the pilots (First name, Last name, Official sail number, FISLY ID number)
  • the identity of pilots benefiting from a "travel bonus"
  • the number of nations represented

The FISLY calculates the number of points allocated to each pilot and establishes the "International Ranking" according to the method indicated in article 4.

Art 6 Ranking during the season and Final ranking

The ranking during the season and the final ranking are established as follows :

  • All the points acquired in the competitions mentioned in article 3 in each class are added together.
  • Pilots who have not taken part in competitions included in the International Ranking are awarded 0 points.
  • Pilots who take out a FISLY ID during the year are retroactively reinstated in the rankings.
  • Equal / tied positions between pilots remain so during the season. At the end of the last race of the season, these are separated in favour of the pilot who has gained the greatest number of points in a race.
  • The FISLY will send the federations and class associations the updated results for each new competition within 14 days of receiving the results.

Art 7 Final prize-giving ceremony

During the reference continental or world championship closing the season and opening the following one, the FISLY organises a prize-giving ceremony for the final podium of the "International Ranking" of each class.
