Top Women Sailors Face Off
U.S. Women's Match Racing Championship 2005
Fort Worth, Texas, USA
Anticipation is building as the Virtual Spectator ISAF Women's Match Racing World Champion Sally BARKOW and runner up Betsy ALISON along with six other teams, prepare to battle it out on J/22s from 16-19 November 16-19 at US SAILING's ISAF Grade 3 U.S. Women's Match Racing Championship held at Fort Worth Boat Club, Texas, USA.
The National Championship could turn out to be a re-match of the recent ISAF Match Racing Worlds where BARKOW
met in the finals. Looking at the complete list of competitors, winning this regatta will be no easy feat for any team, as the list includes Olympian Pease GLASER, 2002 USA Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year Liz BAYLIS
, as well as several World Champions, and US Sailing Team members.
The stakes for the Championship are high: the winning team will receive US SAILING's Allegra Knapp Mertz Trophy and will qualify for a position at the Regional Finals for the ISAF Nations Cup.
The U.S. Women's Match Racing Championship is sponsored by Rolex Watch U.S.A. and Dry Creek Vineyard.
