The low point system will be used for the overall ranking. There will be only one overall ranking and no-sub-regional rankings. Three regattas count for the overall ranking. Everyone is ranked, even if they have only raced 1 or 2 regattas. Points received for the 1 or 2 non-attended events will be the highest points + 1 from the largest event. If there is a tie, appendix A applies. If there is still a tie, refer to the total number of sailors in events attended. The sailor who raced against the most sailors wins.

All Europa Cup regattas which constitute the Europa Cup Trophy have the same grade and value in points.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the Europa Cup circuit.
