QUESTION ON THE 420 SELECTION NOTICE
QUESTION: What will the selectors do if there are sailors (under 17) that finish higher up the ranking list than Open sailors but don’t get selected to the under 17 event? Are they eligible to be selected for the Open event should there still be places available?
ANSWER: It depends. If the highest ranked under 17 sailor wished to be selected in the Open event then this would free a place in the under 17 team and they could be selected there. If the highest ranked did not wish to be selected in the Open team then this place could be made available instead. The highest ranked sailor will always be given the option.
