Match Race Cup in Croatia. Jürg Kaufmann took this bow on shot,
and here is today’s report from Mirsky
Today saw an unexpected 20 knot Bora mountain wind reign supreme through
to dusk, and with 10 teams in 10 boats meaning no breaks, it was a case
of separating the boys from the men. We stepped it up from the start and
despite some close matches, only lost to the two French teams of Bertrand
Pace and Sebastian Col putting us in 4th place.
We came so close to winning this event last year, going down 3-2 to
Paolo Cian in the finals, so we are as hungry as ever to get a another
shot at the title. Although we motored through the racing today, it
is far from over, with another whole round robin to be completed over
the next two days. We are in a good position to build on our performance
tomorrow which is steadily moving in the right direction. A special
thanks to Line7, Harken and the Royal Perth Yacht Club for their support.
