Mirsky Going AC?
Rising star on the World match racing tour Torvar Mirsky is believed
to have been approached by a new America’s Cup team whom are
interested in signing the 22 year-old helmsman for the 33rd America’s
Cup. This news comes shortly after Torvar and his Mirsky Racing Team
(MRT) secured their spot on the World Match Racing Tour for 2009 by
qualifying for the second ISAF ranking tour card behind Team
Shosholoza’s Paulo Cian. MRT are also hoping to soon announce a major
sponsorship deal that will level the playing field against the well
funded teams like current world champion Ian Williams and past world
champion Peter Gilmour.
