Following on from decisions taken at the ISAF Annual Conference, the ISAF Sailor Classification Code is changing and starting from 1 April 2010, the category of Group 2 sailors will be eliminated.
The ISAF Sailor Classification Code is a service provided by ISAF, giving events and classes a cost-free, international system for classification of sailors. It is incorporated in ISAF Regulation 22. Following a lengthy consultation process with sailors, classes and events which use the Code, the ISAF Sailor Classification Commission proposed the removal of the Group 2 category of classification with an implementation date of 1 April 2010. The ISAF Council approved this proposal at the ISAF Annual Conference in November.
