Worlds Entry Timetable

Wednesday, 21 December 2016 07:37

Several years ago the Snipe Board of Governors voted to amend the entry system for the Hub Isaacs World Championship Deed of Gift. Let's do a quick history of how the Snipe World Championships have evolved:

  • 1934: In the first edition of the Worlds in 1934, only 2 countries were represented with 14 entries.
  • 1947: The first time the event went overseas was in 1947 to Geneva, Switzerland with one entry per country – 13 countries participated.
  • 1969: The one entry per country rule continued through to 1969 when Brazil was allowed two entries to accommodate the prior World Champion Nelson Piccolo to also compete.
  • 1973: the entry system was changed to allow two entries per country plus the current World Champion.
  • 1985: the addition of hemisphere champions was added to the entry quotas.
  • 1992: the Board of Governors moved to a quota system based upon the number of registered boats for the prior year with 2, 3 and 4 maximum entries, plus the hemisphere champions.
  • 2001: the entry quota was changed to include the average number of registered boats for the prior 2 years, and a sliding scale of entries from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8; the hemisphere champions; the addition of the top 2 junior world finishers and an additional entry for the host country and fleet.
  • 2011: the Board approved the latest re-allocation method to allow more competitors to attend the worlds if they meet certain criteria.
  • Minor adjustments have been made since 2011 to help clarify the process through wait lists etc. And that is where SCIRA stands now.

The current list of entry quotas is waiting to be finalized after Dec. 31, but initial allocations are shown on the attached chart.
