SSL GOLD CUP

Sailing has its own World Cup, finally! Like football in 1930 and rugby in 1987, the SSL Gold Cup is designed to crown the best sailing nation of all! The World Top 56 countries, selected on their SSL Nation ranking, will battle their way through to raise the coveted and only Sailing World Cup trophy. The SSL Gold Cup will start on May 19th with the Qualifying Series in Grandson, Lake Neuchatel (Switzerland). All teams ranked from the Top 25 to 56 in the January 2022 SSL Nations ranking will meet in 8 groups of 4 teams each. There will be 5 sessions of the Qualifying Series running from May 19th to July 17th. After 3 to 4 days of racing, only the top two teams of each group will go through to the Final Series that will take place in Bahrain from October 28th to November 20th, 2022, to defend their national colors.

GROUPING

The SSL Gold Cup itself will start in May 2022 in Grandson, on Lake Neuchâtel and will run for six full weeks of competition. In a similar way to the Football World Cup, teams will be divided into seven groups and will take part in a succession of matches and play-off rounds culminating in the Grand Finale. Every five days, at the end of each round, half of the 16 participants of that round will be eliminated and eight new teams will join the qualifiers for the next elimination round. As in a tennis tournament, the order in which each nation enters the competition will depend upon its position in the world ranking (see below). The eight teams that claim the top positions in these rounds will move on directly to the quarter-finals. After the five week qualifying phase in Grandson, the fleet and the event village will move to Lake Geneva for the final two week phase of the SSL Gold Cup.
