Yachting New Zealand have announced the preliminary priority selection for the ISAF World Sailing Championships in Cadiz in September.
Every ISAF Member National Authority (MNA) is automatically given the right to two entries per event. However, up to 4 additional entries, giving a total of 6, may be given to an MNA. The allocation of additional entries will be based on the number of sailors that MNA has in the top 100 of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings for the particular class as at 1 June 2003. In addition, the reigning World Champion in each Olympic class may have a bye (automatic entry).

The New Zealand selection panel of Grant Beck and Glen Sowry met with Terry Nicholas and Peter Lester to discuss the selection of entries for Cadiz.

The criteria for selection of the Yachting New Zealand entries was as follows:

· First spot confirmed from a series of Sail Auckland, Class Nationals and OlympicSail
· Second and subsequent spots to be selected from the results of OlympicSail and any other regattas the selectors may wish to consider.

(In each class Yachting New Zealand can nominate two spots. Additional spots are to be confirmed by ISAF,)


For the majority of classes the selectors have decided to confirm the first two spots from regattas to date. In some cases the selectors have agreed that they are best to reserve their decision on additional entries until ISAF have confirmed actual total number of entries.

With this in mind they have agreed that they will consider the selection of additional spots taking into account regattas between now and when they make the final decisions (i.e. they will consider results from European regattas). The decisions made to date are: (For ISAF Sailor Biographies, please click on individual names)
