The Star Sailors League Finals 2016 will take place in Nassau, Bahamas from 28 November to 4 December.

For the fourth edition of the event, the top 12 Star teams of the SSL Ranking 2016, and 13 VIPs from the world of sailing, will race in the clear blue water in front of Nassau Yacht Club.

25 teams representing 17 countries will battle it out for five days in Nassau, Bahamas.

The introduction of a knockout system inspired by the “play-offs” helps to increase the pressure and ends in the ultimate climax, a "winner-takes-all” final day.

In the first Qualifying stage, 25 teams will take part in multiple races over four days.

The Top 10 make the SSL Final Day and no points are carried through but the winner and runner up get a just reward.

For the SSL Final Day, the winner of the Qualifying Series gets a double bye, the runner-up in the Qualifying Series gets a single bye.
