The U.S. Match Racing Championships Committee (USMRCC) Invitation Committee has issued invitations to the Qualifiers based on skippers’ ISAF rankings and match racing experience, and balanced with the objective of providing opportunities for all interested skippers to qualify for either or both Championships. The highest-placing eligible skipper, not already qualified, at each Qualifier will receive an automatic invitation to the Championship. The Invitation Committee will also extend at least one invitation to each Championship in addition to the Qualifier spots, and potentially more if any spots remain vacant after the Qualifiers.
All skippers who wish to apply for an invitation (to any of these qualifying events) must pay a nonrefundable application fee of $50 to US Sailing and be current members of US Sailing (or their MNA if they are non-US citizens).

“The USMRCC is excited to announce the Qualifying Series this year and hopes it will make the path to the adult match racing Championships transparent and more accessible to all sailors. We are also very pleased with the various host venues and confident that they will deliver a high standard of racing for all the competitors,” said Bruce Stone, Chairman of the U.S. Match Racing Championships Committee.
