The 2008 BSPORT ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship is the tenth edition of the championship and the first ever to be held in the Southern Hemisphere. The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, a name synonymous with match racing as the winner of the 1995 and 2000 America's Cup, hosts this year's event. Racing will take place from 2-6 April on Waitemata Harbour using the club's fleet of ten Elliott 6m sports boats, sailed by a crew of four.

This year 14 skippers and their teams will battle for the ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship Trophy. A round robin followed by a repechage will narrow the line up for the knockout stages down to eight, with quarter- and semi-finals followed by the grand finale, the final of the 2008 BSPORT ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship, scheduled for Sunday 6 April.
