Organizers have announced that racing is only 1 week away from the first starting signal in the SSL Gold Cup.
A total of 8 teams will be in Grandson to kickoff what essentially is like the football World Cup but in sailing.
SSL Team Bermuda is of the first two teams competing in Round 1, Group1 alongside SSL Team Antigua & Barbuda.
The SSL Gold Cup will start on May 19th with the Qualifying Series in Grandson, Lake Neuchatel (Switzerland). All teams ranked from 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 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 from October 28th to November 20th, 2022, to defend their national colors.
