As most of the sailing world knows by now, 2016 means massive changes for one of the most prestigious events in all of sailing. M32 builder Aston Harald acquired the rights to the World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) in 2015 and immediately announced a move from traditional monohulls to a high-impact, hybrid fleet race/match race format in identical M32 cats. Rather than a year-long Tour, 2016 would feature a highly compressed schedule with just six events deciding who will be crowned the world’s ultimate match racer, and the sport’s next millionaire. That’s right – the 2016 World Match Racing Champion will receive a stand-alone prize of USD$1 Million – the biggest single prize ever awarded in the sport of sailing.

M32 World and the WMRT will provide world-leading TV and internet coverage of this revolutionary season, so mark your calendars to watch the world’s best sailors compete for the biggest prize in the sport – live! Or check the schedule and come see us in person for one of the most enjoyable experiences in sports spectating.
