The event will be sailed in J/24 class keelboats in Hamilton, Bermuda, commencing on Saturday. SOUTER will helm with Royal Prince Alfred clubmate SPITHILL on tactics, reversing the roles they played in the ISAF Women's Match Racing Worlds in Annapolis, USA last year, where their team placed sixth in a field of 16. The pair who have swapped podium positions in events throughout the year will be joined by RPAYC's Angela FARRELL, who sailed with SOUTER in two of her National victories, and multiple ISAF Youth Worlds medallist Rayshele MARTIN from Perth.
SOUTER 's team flew out on Sunday with the support of Australia's own tourism icon 'Hamilton Island'. The ISAF Women's Worlds runs in parallel with the qualifier rounds of the ISAF Grade 1 King Edward Vll Gold Cup and the top two placed women's teams gain direct seeded entry to the Gold Cup, where SPITHILL's ISAF Match Racing World Champion brother James SPITHILL is a seeded competitor, following his final defeat to Russell COUTTS (NZL) last year.
