SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - WMRT FINAL 2022

HOST VENUE
CRUISING YACHT CLUB OF AUSTRALIA
AUSTRALIA

Ten teams from seven countries are being represented at this year’s WMRT Final for the Open Match Racing World Championship in Sydney, Australia. The event is being co-hosted with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA).

Denmark, Estonia, France and Italy each have one entry, whilst hosts Australia, New Zealand and the USA will each field two teams for the event. Sailing on one of the most iconic waterways of the world, the race course will be situated just off one of the Harbours islands, enabling close spectator access as well as the stunning backdrop of Sydney’s famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

The winner of the event will be crowned 2022 WMRT Champion and World Sailing Open Match Racing World Champion. The World Match Racing Tour is a long standing Special Event of World Sailing, the governing body of the sport, since 2006.

The event format will include a qualifying round robin on Wednesday and Thursday where the top two finishers will gain automatic entry to the Quarter Finals. The remaining eight teams will then sail a repechage round on Friday for the final six Quarter Final positions.
