What are SailRank Power Rankings?

The SailRank Power Rankings simulate what a regatta with all of the current sailors in the country would look like. The power rankings use the SailRank Rating System, which is a mathematical model that uses the scores of each sailor in each race to determine their rating as they progress in their sailing career. The power rankings create the best possible pairs of skippers and crews for both the A and B divisions of each team. They then simulate the races separately for each division before adding the division scores to determine the final placement of the team (exactly the same way regattas work in the real world). The power rankings are updated weekly, and are a great way to see how your team stacks up against the rest of the country in each discipline. Note: The threshold for being eligible for selection for a team on the power rankings is 5 races in that discipline, so rankings have huge potential for change, especially early in the season and towards the bottom of the lists. Additionally, following the second week of full competition in the Fall season, sailors must sail at least one race in a category during the current competition year to be eligible for the power rankings in that category.

Column Descriptions

  • Rank - The rank of the team in the power rankings.
  • Team - The team number of the team. The #1 Team can be thought of as the team that would be sent to a championship event.
  • Div Rank - The projected finishing place of a given skipper/crew pair in their division.
  • Div Range - The range in which the pair has the possibility of finishing in their division.
  • Avg Rating - The average rating of the skipper/crew pair for a division.
  • Team Range - The possible points totals for the team.
  • Confidence - A measurement of the model's confidence, ranging from 0.0 to 10.0, in a given team's placement relative to all other teams in the ranking. A confidence value of 10.0 does not indicate absolute certainty regarding the placement but rather signifies that this placement is considered to have lower volatility compared to others.
