ISAF Competitions Manager Jon Napier said, 'The ISAF Team Racing Worlds has seen Olympic medallists and strong match racers pit their wits in the team racing environment.

'Close, exciting racing has been seen throughout the history of the ISAF Team Racing Worlds and more of the same will be expected at the 2015 edition.'

Great Britain were the first team to lift the ISAF Team Racing Worlds in West Kirby, Great Britain in 1995. Ireland came in second with Australia completing the podium.

From 2003 to 2009 USA dominated the event winning four in a row before the British team broke the trend at the most recent edition held in Schull, Ireland from 27 August - 4 September 2011.

In 2005 an Under 21 competition was introduced in Gandia, Spain and was won by Great Britain who also picked up gold in 2011 in the Under 19 category.
