Written by KTA on . Posted in News

Fleets of twenty boats in the Olympic events and Open Kiteboarding will race in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in and around Lulu Island off the UAE capital’s stunning Corniche from 27-30 November 2014.

The first qualification places will be awarded at the Santander 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships which takes place in the Spanish city from 8-21 September. The top ten finishers in each Olympic event will be rewarded with a spot on the Abu Dhabi start line.

The next places will be awarded based on the ISAF World Sailing Rankings issued on 22 September 2014. The top six highest ranked sailors who have not qualified at Santander 2014 will be awarded a place.

Two more spots will be up for grabs at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Qingdao which will be held in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition venue from 12-18 October 2014. The highest placed finisher and highest placed Asian sailor, who has not already qualified, will take an ISAF Sailing World Cup Final spot.

Up to two places in each event may be awarded as wild card places at the discretion of ISAF.

The kiteboarding fleet at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Final will be made up of 16 male and four female racers. The top two male and first female sailors qualified for a spot at the Delta Lloyd Regatta.
