*The Audi MedCup Circuit consists of five regattas over the course of five months in four different countries. They are all sailed in Southern European waters, four one in the Atlantic followed by four in the Mediterranean.

Whilst each of the five regattas stand alone as an individual event, winning the Circuit requires the best score aggregated from all of the season’s events. Audi MedCup Circuit website
