By claiming her third consecutive victory in the Lysekil Women's Match, Camilla Ulrikkeholm will further strengthen her top position on the ISAF match racing world ranking. In the Lysekil finale the Dane beat Lucy Macgregor with a 3 - 1 score, but the British team still takes the Terry J Kohler Perpetual Trophy for the inaugural Women's International Match Racing Series. Local sailor Anna Kjellberg defeated French Olympian Claire Leroy 2 - 1 in the petit finale, taking not only third place in Lysekil Women's Match, but also the WIMR Series' runner-up position.

Camilla Ulrikkeholm and her team of the Royal Danish Yacht Club in Skovshoved had an extremely joyful Saturday on the beautiful Swedish west coast, first defeating Claire Leroy 3 - 1 in their semi finals, then repeating the score after a couple of really exciting matches against Lucy Macgregor in the finale. 'We are so happy! When seeing the list of competitors we never expected to be able to win again,' Ulrikkeholm smiled after her third Lysekil Women's Match victory in a row.

'Camilla and her team sailed really well today, and showed they know how to handle the boat perfectly. I feel slightly deflated right now, but we're happy to be second, and to have won the first Women's International Match Racing Series' Macgregor commented. 'We tried to cover Lucy all the time. She's very good at finding the right way and the right puffs, so if she choses a side of the course it's most likely the right one,' Ulrikkeholm explained.

A very disappointed local hero, Swedish Olympian Anna Kjellberg, was defeated 1 - 3 by Macgregor in the semis. Yet determined to revenge herself, Kjellberg went energized into the petit finale. A mid-day lightning and thunderstorm delayed the races a little, but once running the finale offered propaganda conditions on the waters of Lysekil, with a steady southerly breeze and some sun. Kjellberg won the first match, before Leroy broke back and forced the Swede to win the last race: 'We experienced some difficulties in getting every detail right in every match. Still this result is OK, and we would never had expected to finish second in the Women's International Match racing Series' Kjellberg concluded.
