Argo Group Gold Cup - Fraser quick to accept invite

Bermuda will once more be represented by two teams in the Argo Group Gold Cup in October in Hamilton Harbour.

Gold Cup organisers confirmed yesterday that local helmsman Lance Fraser has accepted an invitation to compete in the event sanctioned by the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT).

Fraser was invited to take part in the Gold Cup as a result of being the top-ranked match-race sailor in Bermuda and 57th in the world, according to the latest ISAF rankings.

The Bermudian was unable to compete for the sole qualifying spot up for grabs at the National Match Racing Championship last month because of overseas work commitments.

The invitation to compete became available to Fraser after others declined.

Fraser and his Team Digicel Business Match Racing team-mates are no strangers to the Gold Cup, having competed last year. He received an invite on that occasion as well and made the most of the opportunity by upstaging Johnie Berntsson, the former Gold Cup winner from Sweden, during the group stage. He finished the group stage with three wins and failed to advance to the quarter-finals.
