At the Argo Group Gold Cup, Taylor Canfield (ISV) USone, the reigning champion and number one in the ISAF Open Rankings leads Group one. Ian Williams (GBR) Team GAC Pindar, number two by ISAF, current leader on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour heads up Group two. Both are past King Edward VII Gold Cup winners.

The unranked ‘wildcard’ Sir Ben Ainslie (GBR) Ben Ainslie Racing Team (BART), sponsored by Argo Group— a two-time winner of the Gold Cup, five time Olympic medalist and 2013 America’s Cup winner— fell into Group two with countryman Williams. Mathieu Richard (FRA) GEFCO Match Racing Team, another previous Gold Cup winner, also landed in Group two.

Adam Minoprio (NZL) Team Alpari FX is seeded second in Group one. He is ranked 33 by ISAF because he has been relatively inactive in match racing outside of the Tour events and hasn’t accumulated points. Minoprio is tied with Canfield in the number two spot on the Tour. He was knocked out in the 2012 Quarter Finals by Williams.

Also in Group one is Johnie Berntsson (SWE) Stena Sailing Team. He was the 2008 Gold Cup winner and was beaten by Canfield in the 2012 finals. Berntsson likes the IODs and will be looking for his first win on the Tour this year.

Stage one for the Gold Cup is the Qualifying Round-Robin. Each team will race each of the other teams in its group once. The top four from each group move up to the Quarter Final Series. The Quarter Finals are a ‘first to three points’ knock out series.
