The 21st Santa Maria Cup International Women's Match Racing Championship, an evolving roster of top women sailing athletes will race on Annapolis' Severn River course September 28 through October 1.

The public are invited to meet skippers and crew, past Santa Maria Cup racers, and others at the "Celebrate Women in Sailing Week" in Annapolis at the BoatUS "Meet the Champions" Public Reception at the William Paca House and Garden, September 30, 6:30pm - 9:00pm in Annapolis.

The public is also invited to opening ceremonies on September 27 at 6:00pm at the Susan C. Campbell Park City Dock, Annapolis to welcome the sailors from who hail from five countries.

Hosted by the Eastport Yacht Club, racing can be watched from the water each day and through live commentary on SantaMariaCup.org. The Santa Maria Cup is an International Sailing Federation (ISAF) grade one event.

Eight teams of four sailors in J-22 sailboats will compete in heated head-to-head duels much like the famed America's Cup. However, unlike the America's Cup, each Santa Maria Cup boat is identical, testing the sailing ability of each team, with boat design and materials not being factors.

Team skippers will be Anna Tunnicliffe (USA), Silja Lehtinen (FIN), Julie Bossard (FRA), Maegan Ruhlman (USA), Martina Silva (ARG), Becca Dellenbaugh (USA), returning champion Liz Baylis (USA) and Sharon Ferris-Choat (CAN). Olympic hopefuls can use this event to increase their world rankings for the first Olympic Women's Match Racing at the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.

See a full schedule of events and ticket information at www.EastportYC.org and in Spinsheet Magazine. Photos from past cups and other women sailing events are available at BoatUS.com
