Recommended Posts

Since their is no official ranking at this level, who are the the top semi-pro sailors in each one design class? 

Viper 640

Melges 20, 24, 32, & 40

J 24

J 70

Etchells

49er

Others?

Is this based purely the World Sailing class 1/3 system? 

Seems super vague to be ranking non-pro sailors in those classes. Does semi-pro mean that they've never been pro before? etc etc...

 

You would also be looking a way down the results page to find full corinthian teams in any of those classes(correct me if I'm wrong).

Define "semi-pro", please.

A trust-fund (or otherwise rich enough to not be concerned with the sordid topic of coin) racer like DeVos who isn't paid and doesn't need to be. Phillipe and Shark Kahn.

A trust-fund racer can afford top-level coaches and tacticians and all the practice time he cares to take. We all know a few...

And how would you know this?  Let me guess you heard it from a sailor who heard it from another sailor?
