America’s Cup World Series Final Standings
The nine regatta America’s Cup World Series was won by Ben Ainslie’s Land Rover BAR team. They will carry two bonus points into the double round robin America’s Cup Qualifiers, which begin on Friday 26 May 2017 in Bermuda (download the 2017 Race Calendar here.) Oracle Team USA took second place and earned one bonus point for the America’s Cup Qualifiers.
High points scoring system. Sunday races count double points.
Saturday: 1st place 10 points, 2nd place, 9 points, third place 8 points, … 6th place 5 points.
Sunday: 1st place 20 points, 2nd place 18 points, third place 16 points, … 6th place 10 points.
So last place on Sunday has the value of first place on Saturday. Seems odd, but that’s the way it is. Read more about America’s Cup scoring here.
The America’s Cup World Series runs from July 2015 to November 2016 – with points totalled over the series.
Standings at the end of the America’s Cup World Series could determine the winner of the America’s Cup Match in June 2017 by deciding which team starts the AC Match with a one point lead!
If there is a tie at the end of the round robin phase of racing in 2017 (officially the “America’s Cup Qualifiers”) the ACWS standings will be used as the tie breaker. The same holds for eliminating challengers: At the end of the round robin, the four top challengers go on to the semi-finals of the Louis Vuitton Cup. If there is a tie for fourth place, the ACWS standings will determine which team is eliminated.
