About Us

The new format of League Sailing ...

... is one of the biggest innovations in the sport of sailing that we have had in a while. Out of a simple idea a great movement has grown. The fast spreading of this format with the demand for a standardized framework needs a reliable representation of interests. That is why the foundation of an “International Sailing League Association” as an official representation of interests of all national leagues is needed. 

The mission of the ISLA is to provide a framework for the successful development and longevity of the Sailing League concept throughout the entire Sailing League region.

The most successful sailings clubs compete against each other ...

... for a whole season in several events in the SAILING Champions League. Each club sets up a team with its best sailors. To win the title and the sought-after trophy, the clubs have to show their best performance. Short races, standardized boats, a standardized course and a competition between the best and prestigious sailing clubs in the world guarantee sailing as its best!


The idea behind the SAILING Champions League is simple:

The cup of the national champions. The most successful clubs of the countries with a National Sailing League are competing against each other in several events during the year. At the end the winning club is may call itself, the “Best Sailing Club of the Year”.
