Hyères, France and Weymouth, Great Britain have been named as the European venues for the 2015 ISAF Sailing World Cup series.

Bids to host the two European regattas of the ISAF Sailing World Cup were carefully considered by the International Sailing Federation with key criteria including a compact venue, first class sailing areas and facilities.

The selection of Hyères and Weymouth adds to the 2015 ISAF Sailing World Cup line-up which kicks off in Melbourne, Australia in December 2014 before visiting Miami, USA in January 2015. With the best Olympic class sailors competing for a place at the Final in Abu Dhabi in November 2015 the stage is set for intense racing.

Hyères and Weymouth will welcome the best sailors in the world across the ten Olympic events with the possible inclusion of kiteboarding events to be confirmed at a later date.

Scheduled for the last week of April 2015, ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères will be the first regatta to adopt the new 40 boat per event format (25 for the Skiff events), reinforcing the status of the ISAF Sailing World Cup as the premiere series for Olympic class sailors. The qualification system will be published in August detailing how those 40 boats will be selected. Qualification regattas in Europe are set to be Princess Sofia Trophy in Palma de Mallorca, Spain – for Hyères – and the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, Netherlands – for Weymouth.

Returning to the London 2012 Olympic waters, ISAF Sailing World Cup Weymouth will take place between 8-19 June with the racing conducted over five days.

ISAF thanks all of the venues who submitted a bid for these regattas and their support for the ISAF Sailing World Cup. The strength of the European regattas is clear in the quality of the bids submitted with the selection of the two venues and their qualification regattas indicating a clear pathway from the EUROSAF Champions Cup to the ISAF Sailing World Cup.
