The online interactive ISAF Sailor system provided by the International Sailing Federation is providing biographies of all sailors competing at the 2003 ISAF World Championship.
The online entries and results on the 2003 ISAF World Championship website - www.cadizworlds2003.com - will link directly to the individual sailor's biography, drawing in personal and general information about the sailor, world ranking, campaign websites and images, together with recent and historic results from past events. This comprehensive information is available for media and all interested parties to see and use.
Maintained by the sailors themselves, you can be sure that the information is informative, accurate and up to date.
Whilst all the sailors at the 2003 ISAF World Championship are requested to register to ISAF Sailor, ISAF has been encouraging them to ensure their bios are up to date and maintain the personal and general information sections.
So after Siren SUNDBY's (NOR)
press conference yesterday, she was straight over to the ISAF laptop to update her information. Forecasting the results at the conclusion of the Championship and the Olympic Regatta, ISAF completed the general information question on her aspirations by entering, "Gold, Gold, Gold!"

Promoting the use of ISAF Sailor, ISAF is providing every sailor at the Championship with an ISAF Sailor t-shirt. One of our first models was Mateusz KUSZNIEREWICZ (POL)
, who has been a great supporter of the ISAF Sailor concept and will soon be seen carrying ISAF Sailor decals on his Finn.
