Invitations Issued

Invitations to the 2007 Worlds have been issued to the defending champion Dorte JENSEN (DEN), along with the ten top ranked skippers from the 1 February 2007 release of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings. The 12th and final skipper will be a wildcard selected by the host Sport Nautique de Saint Quay-Portrieux, the Fédération Française de Voile and ISAF.

The Sport Nautique de Saint Quay-Portrieux has a long association with match racing, and women's match racing in particular. The St Quay Womens Match Racing was first given ISAF Graded status in 1999 and went on to become an ISAF Grade 1 event in 2002. In 2004 the club hosted the EuroSAF European Women's Match Racing Championship, and in August they will become the first French hosts of the ISAF Women's Match Worlds.
