Supplementary Clarification on Team Selection

Following inquiries from several members of the Optimist community, the following clarification with regard to team selection is being provided.

  • Team places are offered in the order of the final ranking of trials.
  • The following rules apply for the offering of team places:
    • Sailors who have not previously been members of IDT Poland, IDT France, Europeans or Worlds are eligible for IDT Poland, IDT France, Europeans and Worlds.
    • Previous members of IDT Poland are only eligible for IDT France, Europeans and Worlds.
    • Previous members of IDT France are only eligible for Europeans and Worlds.
    • Previous members of Europeans are only eligible for Europeans and Worlds.
    • Previous members of Worlds are only eligible for Europeans and Worlds.
    • Note, in the cases where multiple rules above are relevant to a sailor, the most restrictive one will be used.
  • A sailor eligible for multiple teams can choose which team they want to participate on as long as places are still available for that team at that point in the offer process.
    • For example, a sailor eligible for IDT Poland, IDT France, Europeans and Worlds can choose to participate on any one of the four for which places are still available.
    • For example, a sailor eligible for IDT France, Europeans and Worlds can choose to participate on any one of the three for which places are still available.
    • For example, a sailor eligible for Europeans and Worlds can choose to participate on any one of the two for which places are still available.
  • The following restrictions apply to gender balance on the teams and may impact the teams on offer for an individual sailor:
    • Worlds, 5 sailors, no gender restrictions
    • Europeans, 7 sailors, max 4 from one gender
    • IDT France, 7 sailors, max 5 from one gender
    • IDT Poland, 7 sailors, max 5 from one gender
