Lysekil Women's Match - Denmark undefeated

Lysekil Women’s Match 2011 Dan Ljungsvik / LWM
At the Lysekil Women’s Match, Trine Abrahamsen from the Royal Danish Yacht Club is alone at six victories and no lost matches so far. 'I’m very thankful to my crew for today’s both victories. They have worked hard in the warm weather and light conditions', she says.

Trine Abrahamsen has completed her Danish crew for the event in Lysekil with a couple of Swedish girls, Annika Carlunger and Elin Åderman, who are running the foredeck: We are really happy for having them onboard, says Trine, who during Wednesday won both her matches and climbed to the top position of the leader board with six victories totally. Sooner or later we will be defeated in a match, but I feel fine as long as we win more than we lose, Trine laughs.

Anne-Claire Le Berre, France, and Silvia Roca Mata, Spain, also won two matches each during Wednesdays’ races. Le Berre is now sharing the second place with three more skippers; Camilla Ulrikkeholm from Denmark and the two Swedes Linda Rahm and Karin Hagström. Spanish Roca Mata is on sixth place, with three victories and as many losses: It’s my first time in Sweden and our first regatta in these boats (the Danish DS 37), and we’ve had some difficulties in the light winds. Today we changed the sail trimming a little, making our speed higher, she reveals.

The light conditions made the Wednesday in Lysekil a day of waiting. First waiting for wind in the morning before the races could begin. And then waiting again when the wind dropped after just six matches. At five in the afternoon the principal race officer decided to close racing for the day.

1. Trine Julie Abrahamsen, DEN, 6 wins – 0 lost matches

The percentage of the high energy UVB rays (said to cause sunburn) that get through to cells in the skin can be determined by the claimed SPF of the product you are using.
