Up the Ladder?
Our boys with Mirsky Racing are poised to make a move…
Internationaux de France – Practise Day
again we arrive in Pornichet to compete in the Internationaux de France,
the event which kick started our sailing careers last year when we defeated
Areva Challenge Skipper Sebastian Col to take home the Manu Minard memorial
This event means a lot to us as a team as it marks the anniversary of
our core team competing together for the first time when last year,
Tudur Owen impressed us in this same event and earned a permanent position
in our team. We are looking forward to racing these great boats in our
favoured conditions after disappointing ourselves in Poland where we
only managed a 7th place.
With the ISAF rankings today revealing that the points are getting
tighter at the top, every regatta is becoming vital in reinforcing our
7th position, and helping us steadily climb up the ladder. Our 2nd at
Match Cup Sweden has brought us up close to Swede Bjorn Hansen who now
only sits 344 points ahead of us in 6th place. With this event, the
Danish Open and St Moritz counting towards the next ranking release,
we are hoping to take another step up in the rankings – both on
the World Match Racing Tour leader board and the ISAF rankings.
