Womens Match Racing Olympic Qualifying Regatta Notice of Race

by ISAF on 17 Oct 2011
. .
The 2012 Women’s Match Racing International Country Olympic Qualifying Regatta Notice of Race has been released.

The ISAF Grade 2 regatta, to be hosted by Key Biscayne Yacht Club (KBYC), Florida, USA from February 1-5 2012, will be the final chance for the Women’s Match Racing teams to qualify their country for the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition.

As only 12 places are available for the Women’s Match Racing at London 2012, competition for places is fierce. Hosts Great Britain directly qualify for one quota in each event with the 2010 ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Championship winning trio of Lucy Macgregor, Annie Lush and Kate Macgregor already named as part of British squad for next year.

At the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, which takes place from 3-18 December in Perth, Australia eight places will be awarded. The final three spots for the Women’s Match Racing Teams will be awarded in Florida with Member National Authorities who have not yet qualified the only ones who are eligible to enter.

Liz Baylis, Executive Director of the Women’s International Match Racing Association said, 'WIMRA is delighted to be partnering with the Key Biscayne Yacht Club and Sail Sheboygan to host an event of this calibre.

'We anticipate some fantastic racing as teams compete for the last three available places for the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition. The pressure will be on, but that’s what fighting for an Olympic spot is all about.'

Skippers that meet the eligibility requirements and request an invitation by January 6 2012 will be invited to compete however no Member National Authority may have more than one entry.

Up to 16 entries are permitted.
