The ISAF Sailing World Cup is the annual circuit of Olympic sailing for elite and professional sailors. Its centre-piece is the ISAF Sailing World Cup Final held in November. The inaugural SWC Final will take place in Abu Dhabi in 2014.
ISAF is seeking two European ISAF Sailing World Cup venues which shall host their regattas between April and August. The existing ISAF SWC calendar includes regattas in Qingdao (October), Melbourne (December) and Miami (January).
The winner of each ISAF SWC regatta will qualify to the Final where 20-boat fleets will battle it out for the overall ISAF Sailing World Cup title. Additional opportunities for sailors to qualify to the Final are at their respective class world championships, the ISAF World Sailing Rankings and "wild-card" places.
All bids must be received by ISAF by 15 July 2014.
An evaluation panel will confirm the venue of the ISAF Sailing World Cup by 31 July 2014.
