Default Class mobility

Aldo, thank you for your explanation of the way it works in Italy. I believe that it is the same in UK.

You say that the Ranking List does not allow duplicate entries. I take this to mean that Australia may not submit the 18m results separately from the Open Class results from their recent Multiclass Nationals.

In other words, while there are new national champions in 4 classes, the FAI will consider the Australian contest to have been a 2-class comp, for the purposes of ranking.

Can someone from IGC confirm this?

Default Class mobility

T8,

US Nationals have been used for FAI ranking over the years if the contest management decides to report the results and pays the associated sanction fees. This has been hit or miss over the years.

As an example you can see the FAI ranking for Phil Gaisford who has ranking based on the PanAms in 2015 that is a Category I event he won and then the 2018 US Standard Class Nationals which he also won and is considered a Category II event. As others have said, the ranking of each event changes with the “quality” of competitors.

Pat, that is correct from the Aussie side of things, only 15M and Open class results will go to the IGC for ranking points.
The whole joint classes is to deal with the numbers of gliders, not anything to do with IGC rankings.
