We have not yet introduced foiling boats to the Women’s WMRT but we continue to look at the feasibility of using foiling class boats in match racing.
We are committed to ensuring that WMRT works towards delivering the highest standards of sustainability initiatives at all its events. We have partnered with World Sailing’s Special Event Sustainability Charter as part of the governing body’s Sustainability Agenda 2030.
As we operate a ‘hosted event’ model at WMRT, all the equipment and boats are supplied by events which avoids us having to ship many containers around the world.
The Women’s WMRT is a series exclusively for women teams.
There is no age limit to competing at Women’s WMRT events however most events will require to competitors to be at least 18yrs.
Each of the events on the Women’s WMRT are independently organised, so you can contact the events directly for information on how to enter a team.
The number of crew varies at each event depending on the boats which are used. The usual number of crew (including skipper) is 4-5 and some events allow 6 crew.
On-water umpiring allows umpires to make instant decisions during races and therefore avoid lengthy protest hearings ashore. Penalties can be given to teams during the race so they can be completed before the end of the race. Teams will also try to force penalties on their opponent during a race to gain an advantage.
Currently match racing is not an Olympic sailing discipline. The last time match racing was in the Olympics was the Women’s match racing at the London 2012 Olympics.
