The SSL Gold Cup is designed to crown the best sailing nation of all! The 1/16 Finals of the SSL Gold Cup Finals series are absolved, and moves on to the 1/8 Finals. On the first weekend of December, the Nations world champion will be crowned. In Fleet 1 Chile, Malaysia and Estonia finished on equal points while Austria were only two points behind. There was a different winner in every race, and Estonia only missed out on qualifying for the 1/8 Finals due to not winning a race. In Fleet 2 Tahiti started well, but the strong Hungary team quickly found their stride and handed Tahiti their first defeat in Race 2. The Hungarian ‘Shamans’ then won the double points final race to win their group, with Tahiti qualifying second. In Fleet 3 all looked set for Croatia and Antigua & Barbuda to progress to the 1/8 Finals until Portugal’s ‘Navigators’ found their own breeze on the left of the final downwind leg to go from last to first, while at the same time South Africa overtook Croatia. In second all had changed and Portugal won the group with South Africa qualifying second. In Fleet 4 Lithuania put in a commanding performance to win the group, winning two races and finishing second in the other, only losing to the second qualifier Slovenia.
USA, Argentina, Poland, Brazil, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden and France enter the competition at the 1/8 Finals stage and will face off against the eight qualifiers.
