About Match Racing
Match Racing is an extremely popular discipline of sailing and is recognized around the world. Two teams competing in a fast paced 15-minute head to head duel in identical boats makes every race a game of inches and precision often not decided until seconds from the finish line. With the race course just out of reach from the spectators, the competitors will often use the shore as a “pick.”
The race requires quick thinking, precise teamwork and a superb knowledge of tactics and rules, which is exciting for both sailors as well as spectators!
