Women's Match Racing Olympic Qualifying Regatta Notice of RaceReleased

The Notice of Race for the 2012 Women’s Match Racing International
Country Olympic Qualifying Regatta has been released.

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

Just 12 places are available for the Women’s Match Racing at London
2012 so competition for places is fierce. As 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.

Eight places will be awarded at the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World
Championships, which takes place from 3-18 December in Perth, Australia. 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.
