The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) invites bids from parties interested in hosting future editions of the ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championships.
The ISAF Women's Match Racing Worlds has been held every year since 1999 with the most recent event in 2010 being hosted by the New York Yacht Club in the USA. For 2011 the champion will be decided at the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the principal qualification event for the 2012 London Olympic Games where women's match racing will make its Olympic debut.
If you would like to bid to host the 2012 ISAF Women's Match Racing Worlds before the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition, the Match Racing Committee would recommend that the organizers use the Elliott 6m.
If you would like to bid to host the 2012 ISAF Women's Match Racing Worlds after the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition or the 2013 ISAF Women's Match Racing Worlds, the Match Racing Committee would be receptive to the use of any appropriate keelboat.
Bids must be received by the ISAF Secretariat and must include confirmation of support for the bid from the relevant Member National Authority. All bids received will be reviewed by the Match Racing Committee and their recommendations will be submitted to the ISAF Council for the final decision.
Bids to host the 2012 edition must be received by 1 April 2011.
Bids to host the 2013 edition must be received by 1 September 2011.
