Traditional match racing isn’t always our cup of tea, but even adrenalin-junky/snobs like us have to admit it takes serious boathandling mastery to have even a remote chance of winning any match race, let alone the grand finale of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.  In a great video example of this kind of skill, Bjorn Hansen must scrub off a penalty against frenchman Mathieu Richard if the Swede is to keep his hopes of a first World Title alive, and the only way to do that is to nearly stop his boat despite 15 knots of wind coming from behind.  Watch it unfold here, with Clean and Simon Shaw on commentary.  For a video wrap-up of the penultimate day of Tour racing, go here.

To see if Taylor Canfield and his US-One team can continue to crush their opposition and hold on to become the first American (yeah, yeah, we know) to win the World Match Racing Tour in over a decade, as well as a big chunk of the incredible MILLION F*%KING DOLLAR prize purse, watch the live stream on Livestream, or scroll back up to the top of the page in a few hours.
