Goal and Purpose of an International Ranking List
The International Ranking List shall serve the following purposes:
Rank all interested dragon sailors corresponding to their relative performance within the last 12 month.
Use the current ranking information to fill up groups for an event with group starts (like the Gold Cup 2003 in Medemblik).
Extend the current concept of International qualification to World and European Championship: The best 20 helmsmen of the International ranking list of the previous year are qualified for the World and European Championships of the ongoing year.
