COMPETING SKIPPERS 2017 TO BE ANNOUNCED

MATCH RACING

The dawn of a new day

Match Racing Revamped

At the start of the 2016 season of the World Match Racing Tour, the rules of the game were rewritten. The most fundamental change was the boat switch to the exciting M32 Catamaran. With its light weight and quick acceleration, the match racing outside the island of Marstrand became a whole new ball game. 

In 2017, the event at Marstrand serves one of seven stages of the World Match Racing Tour, which visits Europe, Australia, USA and Asia. The final event will be held in China in November.  

All events have the same format. The week begins with a round robin of fleet races from which the 16 best teams go through to the knock out stage. It all ends with one, winner-takes-all, breath-taking final!
