The Women's Match Racing Quarter Finalists have been decided after the Round Robin threw out some great racing.
Australia's Olivia Price ended the Round Robin undefeated with 11 victories. She sailed a great final race to overcome Rita Goncalves (POR) sealing the perfect record.

Price will face Renee Groeneveld in the first Quarter Final after the Dutch match racer squeezed ahead of Stephanie Hazard (NZL) for the final spot.

Russia's Ekaterina Skudina, Spain's Tamara Echegoyen and America's Anna Tunnicliffe all finished on eight wins each but with Skudina defeating both she finishes second whilst Echegoyen finished third having overcome Tunnicliffe.

Skudina will meet World #2 Lucy Macgregor in the second Quarter Final, Echegoyen will go up against Claire Leroy (FRA) and Tunnicliffe has to face 2012 World Champion Silja Lehtinen (FIN).

All the teams have two days off to recharge the batteries before the Quarter Finals on 7 August.
