For 2015 in an effort to focus activity into a smaller number of events for the top ranked teams five of the 2K events have been designated Tour events.
There are other events which are non Tour e.g. Scarlino in Tuscany in April.
The Tour Events are:
Las Palmas, Rome, Cala Galera, Istanbul and Monaco.
The top six ranked teams as of 1 November 2014 have been offered Tour Cards. All have accepted.
These teams are Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Spinnaker, Serpentine, Rome Racing Team, DMTRA and the Royal Thames Yacht Club.
The Tour Card holders receive priority in getting a place at events, but at the time of writing there are open places available at all the events. These will be allocated on a first come basis.
At the moment there are 5 Open places at Las Palmas, but just 1 at some other Tour events.
