Today, the World Match Racing Tour unveiled the left over 4 ‘Tour Card’ captains who will be a part of the World Championship 2016. They are France’s Yann Guichard, Sweden’s Mattias Rahm, Denmark’s Nicolai Sehested and United States’ Sally Barkow, the leader of the first ever all-female Tour Card team.
These appointments complete the skipper lineup for World Championship 2016. Sally Barkow, born in the United States, is a former sailor as well as 2-time US Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year. She has received her racing stripes both offshore and inshore, and recently on board all-female Team SCA in Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15.
Yann told that he has always been down to match racing. The World Match Racing Tour now offers a unique scope to combine both these aspects. The World Tour will constitute a grand sporting goal for Spindrift racing in the coming year.
