Black Swan Racing into Semi-Finals at Trapani International Match Race 2009
Today's conditions mirrored yesterday with westerly winds ranging between 5-15 knots. We had a great day winning all of our remaining matches to progress trouble free into the semi-finals. Tomorrow will bring a new challenge with racing taking part inside Trapani harbour rather than outside in the open water. This should provide some tricky racing but with experience from last years regatta we feel confident.
"We had a great day today and feel we are sailing the boats well. Tomorrow will be a bit different inside the harbour but we are excited to be racing here again in the finals" Keith Swinton, Helmsman Black Swan Racing.
