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

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.
