Why Not Register as an ISAF Sailor?

Why Not Register as an ISAF Sailor?

The ISAF Sailor Classification Code exists as a service to provide events and classes with an international system of classification for sailors.

You can easily register HERE on the World Sailing website and then, once you are registered, you can apply for the ISAF Sailor Classification Code which documents your sailing cruising and racing qualifications and experience. This can then be accessed by yacht owners, and sailing event organisers, who are looking for racing and/or cruising crew.

More information can be found on the World Sailing website by clicking HERE
