The Women’s International Match Racing Association (WIMRA) was formed in 1996 and is an international association of women sailors whose mission is to expand and strengthen global match racing and promote opportunities for competitive women’s sailing at every level.
WIMRA is a woman-led designated 501c3 organization with a mission to promote the sporting event, women’s sailing, competition, female entrepreneurship, global relations and cultural exchange. WIMRA is the champion of women’s international match race sailing at every level from the developing sailor to the experienced professional. After the incredible success of women’s match racing in the 2012 Olympics, WIMRA created the first and only professional sailing series for women in 2013 – the Women’s International Match Racing Series (WIM Series).
The WIM Series delivers a global circuit of fierce competition where the world’s best sailors compete and thrive. Launched in 2013, the WIM Series has delivered 31 events at host venues around the world, attracted over 500 international women sailors representing all areas of the sport (Olympians, National Champions, World Champions, and Volvo Ocean Race veterans), and crowned 6 Series Champions.
