Match Race Cup, an ISAF Grade 2 event, held in Slovenia for the second
time. 10 crews from 8 countries are attending the regatta. The races started
early in 15-20 knots of NE wind which only grew stronger during the afternoon.
The round robin is sailed on J24 boats, semifinals and finals will be
sailed on new TheOne racing boats.After completing 10 flights, Eugenij
Neugodnikov (RUS) and Tomislav Basic (CRO) have 7 wins in 7 races, followed
by Ian Ainslie (RSA) with 4 wins in 5 races and P.A. Morvan (FRA) with
3 wins. The conditions were difficult with shifty and gusting wind, but
the pictures speak for themselves.
One of the crews was surprised by a gust and after a chinese-gybe capsized
a J24 boat. Luckily no one was hurt and no equipment broken! – Andraz
