Mirsky Racing Team finish second at Open de España

Lack of wind results in no racing on the final day of the Open de Espana Match Race, leaving MRT unable to vie for the title, finishing 2nd to Damien Iehl.

After a very solid week of racing MRT were awarded the silver medal when frustrating conditions ruled out any further racing. Light winds plagued the week and unfortunately the race committee could not fit in the format.

"It was tough to finish the regatta with only one loss in the round robin, Damien beat us on count back in stage one and that is the result that will stand for today" said Kinley Fowler, Trimmer.

MRT will now have a two week break before the second event of the World Match Racing Tour, Match Race Germany.
