Quota Allocation System:
Online entry will open Friday, October 30, 2015 5:00pm GMT (12:00pm EST). Entries will be open, not first-come firstserve, from October 30, 2015 to December 4, 2015. The Priority Entry Deadline will be at 5:00pm GMT (12:00pm EST) on Friday, December 4, 2015. Entries must be paid in full by the deadline in order to be considered. If the maximum quota has been exceeded by the deadline, then every nation gets one entry, then two, then three, etc. in order of their highest-ranked competitor. If the quota is not exceeded by the priority deadline, then entries will continue to be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until the quota is reached. Every nation is guaranteed at least one place in each class if they submit a paid entry prior to the priority deadline. Last year there was an error in the NoR that allowed each nation to get one place even after the deadline, but that will not be the case in 2016. If you enter and pay before the priority deadline, you are likely to be accepted in virtually every class. Do not wait until the last minute to submit your entry and payment. If you have payment problems or online issues at the last minute your entry will not be valid. The quota allocations are much more likely to effect athletes from USA and CAN in classes such as Laser, Radial, RS:X M and RS:X W because USA and CAN typically seek five or more entries in each class. If the quota system is in effect at the priority deadline, then each nation determines which athletes fill the allocated places. There will not be a qualifying regatta, although some nations may designate an event for their own internal qualification.
