2015 Test Event Qualification (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and 2015 USST Rio Fleet priority assignment
- There is one entry per event per country per class for the 2015 Rio Test Event. This spot and priority for use of the Rio fleet for 2015 will be based upon series score determined by finishes at 2015 SWC Miami and 2015 Palma (Princess Sophia). In this series, athletes’/teams’ scores will be their overall finishes in the regattas, counting finishes by non-Americans, and ties will be broken in favor of the athlete/team finishing higher in 2015 Palma.
- The OSC reserves the right to replace either of these two events if it determines that ISAF-imposed stipulations render them inappropriate for this purpose.
- Qualification events subject to change pending ISAF decisions about SWC events. Any revisions will be posted as final by 12/31/14.
