: "ABU DHABI // The capital will spend the weeks following the Formula One weekend transforming into the centre of the sailing universe. Abu Dhabi will host the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) World Cup final from November 27-30 in the waters off the Corniche. It adds another high-profile sailing event to Abu Dhabi’s portfolio, with the Volvo Ocean Race set to arrive in mid-December. The sailing World Cup will conclude its annual international circuit by bringing the signature final event to Abu Dhabi, the culmination of a series that this year has gone to Melbourne, Miami, Hyeres, France; Weymouth and Portland, UK; and Qingdao, China. The event will bring together the world’s top sailors in the 10 Olympic classifications and kiteboarding, with 20-strong fields for each discipline drawing from the 10 top points scorers from the previous five World Cup events as well as the top-10 finishers in each race at September’s ISAF world championships in Santander, Spain....The organisers also announced an agreement to have Abu Dhabi host the ISAF final for six years, through 2019."
