Twelve Open teams representing some of the best match racers in the world, both men and women, will put their skills to the test in the fifth Annual Carlos Aguilar Match Race (CAMR), presented by Ulysse Nardin/Trident Jewels and Time, December 5-9, 2012.

Homegrown talent will be among the toughest and include America’s Cup winning helmsman and 2009 CAMR winner, Peter Holmberg.

Five top-ranked women skippers are confirmed to compete and include: the USA’s fifth ranked Sally Barkow, who narrowly lost to Finland’s Staffan Lindberg in last year’s finals; Brazil’s 15th ranked Renata Decnop; the USA’s 26th and 31st ranked Stephanie Roble and Beca Dellenbaugh, respectively; and Denmark’s 30th ranked Lotte Meldgaard Pedersen.

Other skippers that will vie for the championship include the USA’s Dave Perry and Chris Poole, Germany’s Sven-Eric Horsch, Brazil’s Henrique Haddad and BVI’s Colin Rathbun.

The winner of the British Virgin Islands’ Pete Sheals Memorial Match Race, set for December 1-2, will also receive an invitation.

The Open champion in this International Sailing Federation (ISAF)-provisional Grade Two event will be awarded either an Ulysse Nardin Lady Diver or Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver precision timepiece.

Past winners of the CAMR read like a Who’s Who of sailing: Finland’s Staffan Lindberg won the Open Division in 2011, while the USA’s Genny Tulloch triumphed in 2008 and 2010 and France’s Claire Leroy in 2009 in the Women’s Division, and it was the USVI’s Taylor Canfield in 2008 and Peter Holmberg in 2009 and Portugal’s Alvaro Marinho/Seth Sailing Team in 2010 that won in the Open Division.

The race format will be a double round robin where the top three teams move forward. The remaining teams enter a repechage event where the top two teams advance. This offers everybody two tries to make it into the finals.

Match racing pits one identical boat against another on a short course oftentimes near to shore. On-the-water umpires make instant calls and enforce the rules. The result is very exciting racing up and down the Charlotte Amalie waterfront where spectators can enjoy tented bleacher seating. The CAMR will feature live commentary on the waterfront and a live webcast on the website where a global audience is expected to follow this nautical chess match. Racing starts at 9 a.m. (GMT – 4 hrs) daily.
