Competition Eligibility (ISAF Regulations 19.1 to 19.3)

Under the World Sailing Eligibility Code (Regulation 19), all competitors are automatically granted Competition Eligibility. Competition Eligibility can be suspended or revoked (or have conditions imposed upon it) by either an World Sailing Member National Authority (within its own jurisdiction only) or by World Sailing.

A competitor who does not have Competition Eligibility (i.e. it has been suspended or revoked), or who is in breach of a condition imposed upon it, shall not compete in any competition in the sport of sailing to which any of the World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing or World Sailing Regulations apply.

A boat that races with, as part of her crew, a competitor who is in breach of the Eligibility Code is to disqualified from all affected races in the event of a protest.
