My personal opinion is that this World Cup series has been a failure. So many of the top guys and gals are missing.
I hope that World Sailing will discontinue the event or 'invent' something more interesting.

Exactly. To the sailors SWC regattas are essentially meaningless, unless they're used for country qualification. The commentators themselves revealed it this time right away: the 49er classes weren't participating at all, because of their nearly-overlapping European Championships. In simple English: Olympic classes consider continental championships of their own more important than the World Cup FINAL.

The Laser classes are large enough to always fill a quota, but these weren't exactly the intended "best of the best" fleets, either.
