The ISAF Sailing World Cup Final - the world's pinnacle sailing regatta contested by the best Olympic class competitors - is on its way to the United Arab Emirates with the first event due 25-30 November 2014.
For the top ranked sailors there has been just the one regatta to add to their points tally since the last ranking release. Williams remains at World #1 by a whisker, just 12 points ahead of Taylor Canfield from the US Virgin Islands.

It's more like Costa del Hayling at the moment - sweltering heat and little wind make it great for sunbathers and ice cream vans, but less so for the Moth fleet. The race committee made the most of the breeze that did come in and managed to get two races in for Yellow fleet and one for Blue fleet, bringing the Qualifying Series to a close after 5 races.
