unlikely match

We’re stoked to see 72′ cats in the America’s Cup not because we are multihull-obsessed; we’ve just spent too many hours watching boring-as-hell monohull match races, 95% of which are over at the start.  And when races are over 20 seconds in, at least the big multihulls give us something exciting to watch.

And then there are monohull matches like this one above; the final of the Stena Swedish Match Cup – if all monohull matches were this exciting, the Cup might still be in IACC boats.

Hometown favorite and defending event champ Bjorn Hansen goes down 2-0 to Phil Robertson’s Waka Racing team in a first-to-three final. With tens of thousands of Swedes screaming and cheering from the rocks, Hansen storms back to even it up at 2-2.  And even with an ad hoc video coverage setup and an amateur broadcaster on the microphone, the final race doesn’t disappoint.  Will the young Kiwi get his first win on the Tour, or will the local star win an unprecedented two in a row?

Watch the whole thing here, or the abbreviated reel above.
