This will be an opportunity to showcase the 49er Class during one of the biggest events in sailing, with racing taking place the weekend after the Louis Vuitton Cup round robin series final and just ahead of the Louis Vuitton semi-finals. The exact race format is yet to be confirmed, but it is guaranteed to be one of the most competitive and adrenaline fuelled events of the season.
AC Management, the team responsible for organizing the America's Cup 2007 is working with the International 49er Class to ensure that some of the world's top sailors take part in the competition. Up to 25 teams will be able to compete, with successful entrants being invited to attend based on applications. The President and the CEO of the 49er Class will then invite the top 25 applicants based on the latest ISAF World Sailing Rankings.
The one stipulation from AC Management is that all invitees must agree to remove all branding/personal sponsors from their boat. AC Management will provide the prizes and organize social functions for sailors over the action-packed weekend.
