The 2021 WMRT season will comprise two levels of events – ‘World Tour’ events and ‘World Championship’ events. All events will be organised under World Sailing rules as ‘Open’ match racing events allowing both men and women teams, as well as mixed teams to enter. The ‘World Championship’ level events will award higher points and prize money of at least USD75,000.
The number of events that skippers will count towards the world championship will depend on the number of WC events included in the Tour;
- > If there are between 4 and 6 WC events, skippers will count their best 4 (four) results, one of which shall be from the WMRT Final in Shenzhen, China.
- > If there are 7 or more WC events, skippers will count their best 5 (five) results, one of which shall be from the WMRT Final.
