After two successful years of the SAILING Champions League and three years of sailing in the league format in Europe the SCL organisers from Konzeptwerft are publishing the “National Sailing League Rule Book”, the first manual for National Sailing Leagues and the SAILING Champions League. The first version has been approved by the Steering Committee and will continuously be improved.
The German initiators could not foresee the fast development of the new sailing format “National Sailing League” as the first club competition on country level, when they started in 2013. Two years later, twelve leagues were established in Europe. At least three more countries are supposed to follow in 2016.
To ensure comparability of the National Sailing Leagues and thus come to the qualification of the best clubs for the SAILING Champions League, the SCL organisers and the Steering Committee did compose a manual, the official “Rule Book”.
The Rule Book defines mandatory requirements for the National Sailing Leagues to qualify for the official and nationally exclusive quality label “National League License” as defined by the founders and organisers of the SAILING Champions League. Only this quality label allows a country and the clubs of the respective league to participate in the SAILING Champions League.
The framework requirements for the National League License consists of:
– Parameters for organising a national league
– Event format and event programme
– Qualification mode
The framework requirements for the SAILING Champions League consists of:
– Tasks of the Steering Committee
– Qualification for the SCL events
– Hosting a SCL event
– Mode of a SCL event
