Mirsky Racing Team starts Open de España with 2 wins

After a long morning ashore, the Mirsky Racing Team finished the day with a clean scorecard with 2 from 2.

The forecast for the whole week is predicting light winds, and Calpe delivered today with only four races of the round robin being completed in a light sea breeze, which soon died and the teams were sent ashore.

The Mirsky Racing Team raced Michelle Perris of Monaco, who despite being one of the lowest ranked skippers here has a hot shot crew with world number one Adam Minoprio calling the shots, Dave Swete from Minoprio's BlackMatch Racing trimming and Pietro Mantovani from Team Azzura on the bow. Although the race turned out in MRT's favour with a strong prestart giving them the early advantage, Perris is not one to be taken lightly.

"It was a good day in light conditions, we managed to put together the shifts to take 2 wins." says Kyle Langford, MRT's tactician. "There is still a long way to go so we are going to keep on building on today's performance."

Tomorrow's forecast is similar to today's, with light winds in the morning, dying off in the afternoon.
