The ISAF Sailing World Cup is a world-class annual series for Olympic sailing. It is open to the sailing events chosen for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition.

Following demand from sailors, ISAF Member National Authorities and the media the International Sailing Federation launched the ISAF Sailing World Cup in 2008 to bring the existing major regattas on the Olympic sailing circuit together.

Over 2,000 of the world's leading sailors representing 75 nations competed in the fifth season of the ISAF Sailing World Cup as the best sailing talent gathered.


Abu Dhabi will host the inagural ISAF Sailing World Cup Final through to 2017. Set in the UAE's stunning capital, the Final will bring together the top 20 boats from each Olympic class as well as an open kiteboarding event. It will provide the best with an annual challenge to be crowned ISAF Sailing World Cup Champion.

With supplied equipment as well as financial help with accommodation and expenses the final is a new concept. Prize money will be awarded to the top three overall finishers in each of the Olympic events from a total prize purse of US$200,000.
