Scoring details:
During each scoring period, points from a maximum of two Qualifying Races will be scored. An athlete must start in two Qualifying Races over the Series cycle to be eligible for the championship. If an athlete earns points in more than two events, the athlete’s highest two finishes will be scored.

The Wheelchair Series will follow the same rules, with the only difference being the number of races that count for the title. In Series without World Championships or Paralympic Games it will be the best four of seven races to score. In years with either of those events, it will be the best five of eight races to score.

Bonus Points for Wheelchair Athletes:
Starting with Series XII, AbbottWMM adds bonus points for wheelchair athletes in the form of a spring competition to be staged at different locations on the course of each AbbottWMM race. Each race decides on the location of a mark or a point-to-point distance that will offer eight bonus points to the first athlete past that mark. The maximum amount of times an athlete can win the additional points over a series will be three times.

The top three women and men in the open and wheelchair divisions will be awarded prize money as follows:
