262 applications were received by the Qualification Commission, with 152 Commission Places allocated in the second round for all events, with the exception of the Laser. There are now no more places in the Finn, Men's RS:X, Men's 470 and Women's 470 events. Commission Places were granted to Colombia and Antigua, two nations without a previous entry. With the withdrawal of Kuwait, this brings the total number of nations in Cascais to 75.
Applications for the second round of Commission Places for the Laser event are currently being processed and will be published shortly.
The entry process now moves into the third round of Commission Places. Go to the Championship microsite - www.sailing.org/worlds2007 - for full details of the Commission Places.
