Launched on 1 March 2002, ISAF Sailor - sailor enables sailors and any interested parties to register online and then sign up to a number of services. One of the key information provisions of ISAF Sailor is the online biography, which sailors can enter and update themselves. The aim is to provide a central resource for media and fellow sailors to access biographies and other related information about the sailor.

ISAF would ask all MNA's to encourage their sailors to sign up to ISAF Sailor and for event organizers to include links from results to their biography. Click Here for details of how to include links to biographies in results.

Other services provided by ISAF Sailor are:

Email Services - subscriptions newsletters for a variety of ISAF, Class and Member National Authority news and views
Online Forum - discussion forum which focuses on views from around the sailing world.
Sailor's Classification - online classification of amateur/professional status (only applicable for those events which mandate limitations on the professional/amateur status of crew)
Media Office - whilst this section is still being developed, in time it will provide a one-stop sign-up for media to accredit to sailing events
Image Library - this section is also being developed but will provide a comprehensive image library

The ISAF Sailor Biography and other ISAF website content and information can be reproduced on external websites by the use of include files. For further information Click Here

Whilst registration to ISAF Sailor is only mandatory for certain events (Olympic Games, Regional Games, ISAF events), ISAF encourages all sailors to sign-up to ISAF Sailor and ensure that up-do-date information is available on sailors worldwide.
