For the Louis Vuitton Cup (LVC)2002/2003 the rule has been changed. The goal was  that strong team must not sail for the win in countless races to compete then as the winner -exhausted in men and material - against a rested defender. First, the teams sail against each other in 2 Round Robins (RR) for points. From the quarter-finals onwards 2 teams each sail in 7 races (best of seven) in the k.o. System against each other The 8 challengers in the quarter-finals were divided into 2 groups, which were called for better understanding "Blue A, Blue B" and " Blue C and Blue D". The 4 best teams (with the most points after the 2nd RR) came into the Blue Groups A, B, Should they be defeated in a k.o. Round they have the chance for a win in a Repêchage Round and to continue the LVC. The remaining 4 weaker teams came into the Blue Group C, D. Under certain conditions, the 4 strongest syndicates can choose their opponents (also from Blue C, D) or skip a regatta. A limited possibility has the 5th strongest team as well. A second  Repêchage Round was also established after the semifinals.
