Adam Minoprio in second place on second day of Baltic Match Race

Hi all from BlackMatch,

Today was day two of the Baltic Match in Finland and although there was plenty of action on the water in an attempt to finish off the first round robin, we were only involved in three races, winning 2 from 3. We still have 3 races on the final day tomorrow to see if we will proceed through to the semi final stage of the regatta and we are currently looking ok, lying in 2nd position to Australian Evan Walker, who only has 1 loss.

Our loss today came against world #4 and Baltic Match Race regular, Bjorn Hansen. It was however an extremely close race and we took many positives out of it that we are hoping to take into the final day. We are gaining confidence now in the J-80 boats and hope we can win through to the final tomorrow.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our sponsors FedEx Express and Ross Munro from Line 7, also to our yacht club the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. To our friends and family back home we also thank you for all of your support.
