XII Women's Match Race Criterium - The ISAF Grade 1 XII Women's Match Race Criterium which took place in Calpe Spain was won by Anne-Clare Le Berre (FRA) defeating Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) in the final.

Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) had dominated the qualifying series with an unbeaten record through both round robins and the semi-final. Seeing off Camilla Ulrikkeholm 3-0 in the Semi-Final Echegoyen was all set to take her first ISAF Grade 1 victory. Anne-Claire Le berre (FRA) had a tougher contest to reach the final, eventually beating Silvia Roca mata (ESP) 3-2.

The final was extremely close with Echegoyen taking the first victory after Le Berre received a penalty but even after a good start could not hang on to make the score 2-0. At one point each the third match went to Echegoyen before Le Berre picked up the fourth to tie the score at 2-2. A tense fifth and final match eventually went to Le Berre who took the overall win.

The petit-final between Silvia Roca mata (ESP) and Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) was a first to two point and, as in the final, the Spanish skipper took the first point. Ulrikkelholm claimed the next two matches and with them the bronze medal.
