|The ISAF Sailing World Cup 2009-2010 incorporates seven regattas. Sailors can score points at each regatta to count towards their World Cup Series Standing.
ISAF Sailing World Cup Series
In each event, only the 20 boats ranked highest in the overall ranking of the regatta will be scored the following points:
||World Cup Points
The ISAF Sailing World Cup series score for a boat will be the total of its event scores excluding two events according to the following criteria:
a. After three events, a boat's worst event is excluded
b. After six events, a boat's worst European event* and its remaining worst event are excluded.
If a boat has two or more equal worst scores, the score(s) for the event(s) sailed earliest shall be excluded.
*The European events are:
Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia MAPFRE - Palma de Majorca, ESP
Semaine Olympique Francaise - Hyeres, FRA
Delta Lloyd Regatta - Medemblik, NED
Kieler Woche - Kiel, GER
Skandia Sail For Gold Regatta - Weymouth & Portland, GBR
If there is a Series Score tie between two or more skippers, each skipper's SWC Regatta Scores (ie. R1, R2, R3 etc) shall be listed in order of best to worst, and at the first point(s) where there is a difference, the tie shall be broken in favour of the boat(s) with the best (i.e. highest) score.
If a tie remains between two or more skippers, they shall be ranked in order of their SWC Regatta Scores in the last regatta. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied skippers' scores in the next-to-last regatta and so on.
