YANMAR Racing’s Peter Gilmour is coming to the Stena Match Cup Sweden, an event he has won an amazing seven times, in excellent form
[Source: World Match Racing Tour] Last week YANMAR Racing won the fourth event on the ISAF 2010 World Match Racing Tour, the Portugal Match Cup, and as Gilmour says 'that was a good entrée' into the Swedish event.
‘We consider Sweden to be a Grand Slam event on the World Match Racing Tour. The past 10 or so events there, that we have competed in, have obviously been very, very good for us. We love the event. I think it’s an incredible event with both Open and Women’s match racing - it really comes alive with the mix and it’s just one of those wonderfully unique venues in the world that has a natural amphitheatre setting.
‘It seems we always have sunshine and breeze and a great crowd sitting on the rocks. I think the beauty of Marstrand is a very technical and challenging race course, which is the kind we like best, and a crowd close at hand in a spectacular venue.
‘We had a good run last week in Portugal. Our winning starts on those last two days made a real difference.’
With a 2-1 result in the All Western Australian Final against Torvar Mirsky, YANMAR Racing became the new Portugal Match Cup Champions. Mirsky Racing Team, the 2009 defending champions, finished second with Adam Minoprio's ETNZ/BlackMatch Racing third and Ian Williams' Team GAC Pindar fourth.
