The 12 Top Teams in the World are Invited to ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Championship in Lysekil during Lysekil Women’s Match, 27 July – 1 August.

With women’s match racing on the Olympic programme for the first time at the London Games in 2012, the World Championships this summer in Lysekil, on the west coast of Sweden, will be a key event in the sailing world. The world’s top teams will battle for the World Champion title and the biggest prize money in women’s match racing, 50 000 Euro, during the fifth edition of Lysekil Women’s Match, previously a world cup race.

Today, the invites to the prestigious event will be sent out to the top 12 teams in the world. The skippers will be invited according to the 'ISAF World Match Race Ranking list', which was updated yesterday, March 4. The ruling World Champion and moreover number one on the ranking list, Claire Leroy, will be invited along with the 10 following skippers on the ranking list. The last spot will be awarded by the Swedish Sailing Federation and the organising yacht club Lysekil Yacht Club Gullmar.

French Claire Leroy and her Team Ideactor will be defending the World Champion title for the second time in a row. Swedish Linda Rahm is ranked second in the world and familiar with her home waters. She will defend her victory of last year’s world cup race at Lysekil Women’s Match and battle for the World Champion title.

Briton Lucy MacGregor, is definitely the top rookie among the invited skippers. MacGregor, who previously was crew on several successful teams, has as skipper climbed the ranking list at impressive speed and is now ranked third on the world ranking. MacGregor will be a name to watch out for, especially keeping the 2012 Olympics at her home nation in mind.
